For the Ecumenical Interfaith Officer. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for The East Jerusalem YMCA. For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Arran our Priest, for all clergy and people.
People: O God, may your dominion grasp us and ravish the hearts of all who claim Christ as Lord.
Leader: O God, make your justice grow in our land, that the victims of this age will find shelter in its branches.
People: To you, Abba, we raise our eyes in hope. Inspire those whose decisions influence the lives of others, that they may discern wisely and act compassionately.
Leader: O God, imaginative Creator, bless artists, poets, and writers with the creative touch of your word.
People: Make them avenues of your vision.
