A Prayer of Joy: December 17
Let us pray:
In the beginning,
You hovered over the earth, disordered and full of chaos
Your presence brought order and illumination
God, hover over our world once again
It seems that turmoil and confusion are the order of the day
We seek your intervention if only through the hands and feet of those empowered by the joy found in you
Empower us to do justice, discern among chaos, and speak boldly that equity, peace, and concord might abide with us. Amen
Written by Rev. Dr. Anthony L. D. Scott, associate conference minister, Rocky Mountain Conference, UCC
