Bless, O Lord, This House of Prayer

Bless, O Lord, this house of prayer.
We commit this church to your loving care.

 

We trust your Name is worshiped here
In truth and purity, now and forever.

 

Give grace and wisdom to the women and men
Who practice and pray the Great Amen.

 

Open, O Lord, our hearts and hands.
Let Christ within us be your command.
