Congregational Prayer 1
Divine One, You convene us, conjoin us;
You imprint us with Your Name, and You
promise us Your eyes and, yes, Your heart.
Holy Mystery, envelop us
as Your cloud filled the temple
preventing the priests
from performing their service.
Radiant Glory, astound every
Holy Spirit temple; come
fill each body of believers.
Congregational Prayer 2
Thank You, Holy Muse, for the Chronicles
of Your faithful, long-forgotten prophets–
Azariah, Hanani, and Huldah.
Thanks for King Jehoshaphat’s honest call:
We don’t know what to do
but our soul eyes are fixed on You.
Teach us to pray like David,
Asa, and Hezekiah, for You pardon
all who set their hearts on seeking You.
