As our prayers to you are rising

Tune: Quem Pastores 88 87

1. As our prayers to you are rising,
through the Son with you abiding,
powerful in the Spirit’s guiding,
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.

2. In our worship and our singing,
in the praise that we are bringing,
as together we are seeking,
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.

3. In the stories we are hearing,
in the lessons we are learning,
in your truth and its unfolding,
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.

4. In the bread that we are breaking,
in the wine that we are sharing,
in this sacramental feasting,
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.

5. In our loving and our living,
in our taking and our giving,
in our birthing and our dying,
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.

6. In our pain and in our hurting,
in our grief and in our mourning,
in the wonder of your healing,
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.

7. In our joy and in our laughing,
in the music of our dancing,
in the hope of life unending,
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.

8. In our waking and our sleeping,
in our sowing and our reaping,
in our friendships and their keeping,      
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.

9. With the saints and their inspiring,
these our prayers are sung rejoicing,
in the name of Christ, uniting,
hold us, gracious Lord, we pray.
