I will not be afraid. They will not make me afraid. The icy stones they cast at me will melt into water. I shall not fear because the Lord is with me. Fear will be banished from my heart and I will rejoice… read more
You speak to us through Scripture,
You cry to us through the oppressed,
You rejoice with us through the uplifted,
You pray with us through the church,
Remind us through your incessant chattering
That we do not need to stop talking among ourselves,
No matter what conclusions we seem to arrive at.
Keep us talking.
Keep us listening.
Speak to us and through us:
Cry, rejoice and pray with us,

May we, O God,
cease to imagine our value lies in isolation
but sacramentally, sacrificially, sensuously
offer our inner wealth to the whole
and in that offering open ourselves
To its gracious hospitality.
WL Wallace, New Zealand
(based on Psalm 36)
Your love, O God, breaks the small boundaries of our understanding.
Your faithfulness is not constrained by etiquette and protocol.
Your righteousness is as firm, yet as fluid as the ever-changing face of the mountains.
Your justice can plumb the depths of our humanity and raise us up to new heights.
You, O God, have created both the Gay and the Straight.
You love and nurture us all.
You preserve and honour our lives.
In you we find refuge and strength, inspiration and courage,
From the abundance of your spirit, without partiality, you give of yourself to us all.
For with you is the fountain of life, in you we find acceptance and renewal.
Liz Styan, England
