Prayers: Listening to God

1.

Let us hear what God the Lord will speak,

for God will speak peace to all people:

To those whose hearts are turned toward love,

To those who keep faith with God’s promises.

Let us hear what God the Lord will speak,

for God will speak peace to all people:

Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet.

Righteousness and peace will kiss each other.

Let us hear what God the Lord will speak,

for God will speak peace to all people:

To those who pay attention to God’s purposes,

that God’s glory may dwell in the land.

(derived from Psalm 85.8-10, NRSV) (2005, 2012)

2.

Let us hear what God the Lord will speak:

For he will speak peace to his people…..

O God of life, you speak a word of grace,

that we might see the scale of your promises.

Speak to us your word of peace,

that we may know your life in our hearts.

You speak a word of compassion,

that we might know your love is enough for all of us, each one.

Speak to us….

You speak a word of hope,

taking into your hands our grief and anger,

guilt and shame.

Speak to us….

You speak a word of mercy,

through which our hurts are healed, our sins forgiven.

Speak to us…..

You speak a word of strength,

steadfast in support of us today,

tomorrow, every day, forever.

Speak to us…..

Let us hear what God the Lord will speak:

For he will speak peace to his people…..

(2005-6, 2012)
