PRAYER FOR THE NORTH OF THE CITY
So Lord from our City Hall
… we look north across this city
We see the Cavehill in the distance
And between here and there so many roof tops
And Lord we are aware that in the houses, very close to us now,
There is much need
Lord there are unemployed bread winners
Beaten up wives
Aimless teenagers being led into crime.
We give you thanks for the strong ties of community
And for those who work for their people.
We pray for the Church in this area
That it will reach out to many, with affirmation, dignity, love and
Lord as we look further out the Antrim Road
We see affluence
The leafy avenues of the suburbs.
And Lord we thank you for material comforts
But we ask you to forgive those of us who are so well off
That we are apathetic about the plight of others
Or about the place of a transcendent God in our lives.
We pray for Churches in these areas
That they will live in such radical ways
That the naked will be clothed
The hungry will be fed
And the prisoner will be visited.
Lord, may we see your Kingdom come
And your will being done in the north of this city as it is in heaven.
