A Prayer for God's Reign
Posted: September 20, 2022
Passing the crown to King Charles, after a reign longer than the lives of most of Queen Elizabeth;s subjects…
With half the world
we watched, O God,
as one so dearly loved
was carried on the shoulders of our grief.
In silence and in song,
we heard You speak, Lord.
Through the words of Your Book,
we were reminded
of the pages of our lives
still being written.
Ironically, we recognize that
a world divided by race, religion, injustices and war
was united in this sacred moment
by a common task:
to remember Her Grace,
with somber gratitude,
as we contemplate Yours.
We acknowledge our alienation
from one another
and from You.
We confess our need of a Savior.
We embrace the gifts
of His presence and forgiveness.
we voice our praise.
With knowledge of Your sovereign reign, we quiet our pride.
With a desire for Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven, we pray.
