OUR COMMON PRAYER (uni­son) from Unset­tled World  by David Sparks

Lord of jus­tice and mer­cy, in this unset­tled world, where we all long to find our way, to feel secure; from lives of tur­bu­lence and rush, we come. In this unset­tled world, where mon­ey rules and greedy sys­tems call the tune; for strength to keep our val­ues straight, we come. In this unset­tled world in this unset­tled church, by faith and in the love of Christ we come with long­ing in our hearts to hear Your Word and our faith to live. Amen!
