Spirit of truth, set us free to emerge as the children of God. Open our ears, that we may hear the weeping of the world. Open our mouths, that we may be the voice for the voiceless. Open our eyes, that we may see your vision of peace and justice. Make us alive with the courage and faith of your prophetic truth. 
(The Worship Sourcebook)
Psalm 7
A Prayer for Deliverance 

O Lord, my God, my refuge sure, 
In Thee my hope is laid;
Before the looming veil of death,
My soul is unafraid.

Though failures of my life abound,
Thy mercy shall preserve;
And Thy redemptive gift of grace
Is more than I deserve.

Arise, O Lord, and in Thy wrath
Mete justice swift and smart;
Weigh righteousness against deceit,
And spare the pure in heart.

For Thou are yet the sword and shield
Before whom foes shall bend;
And those whom faith redeems shall sing
Thy praises without end.

( Psalter for Christian Worship ; Michael Morgan)

Closing Prayer
God, please help me to see the world through the eyes of others. Please help me to have courage to help make change in the world, and the courage to change my own ways of looking at the world and living in it, even when that change means confronting uncomfortable truths. Thank you for the life that you have given me; may I use it always in the service or your Kingdom.. Amen.
Paul Sanner
