The Prayer

Our Father in heaven
the children are crying
Our Father in heaven
the people are dying
We look for Your kingdom
see mercy abandoned
We look for Your kingdom
see justice forsaken
We give You the honor
hope is eroding
We give You the honor
bombs are exploding
Provide for our needs Lord
our wounds find no healing
Provide for our needs Lord
our words have no meaning
We seek Your forgiveness
hatred still chains us
We seek Your forgiveness
fear still constrains us
Oh keep us from evil
denying we’ve done wrong
Oh keep us from evil
refusing to right wrongs
For Yours is the power
lives full yet so empty
For Yours is the glory
lives searching unknowing
Forever
we pray Lord
Forever
we say Lord
Forever
Amen
