CORPORATE PRAYER

By Lisa Huddleston

For burning fires, for drowning floods
For washing sins away in blood
For sicknesses and hope for health
For joblessness and enough wealth
For aching sadness, for despair
For brokenness and for repair
For all these hopes and
All these things …

“Now let us stand and
Continue to sing”

 

(This idea popped into my head Sunday morning, October 15, 2017,  as both our curate and our worship leader used the same phrase following our time of congregational prayer: “Now let us stand and continue to sing.”  I thought of how difficult it is to sing in times of trouble, but how miraculous it is that as believers we can still do it! “By the rivers of Babylon … how shall we sing the Lord’s songs in a strange land?”)
