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!
