Prayer for Our Church – Carpenter image

Jesus, Carpenter of our hearts,

you who nail our sin

and cut away our pride:

Rehab our meeting tonight.

Level our thoughts in Your Kingdom.

Square the Mission into our agenda

so that you again stand out as the cornerstone,

for our church is falling apart.

We sink in sands of disrespect and

We are tearing each other apart with crow-bar words.

Measure us among your people again

through the carpenter’s son, Jesus, Amen.


Special thanks to the Lay Servant Class “Leading Prayer” that I taught in February 2015.  The Spirit used them to help me create this.
