Appropriate Prayer 8 July 2005

Posted by Dr Moose in Uncategorized.

Sometimes the best way to pray is in silence.

Sometimes in a simple, formal liturgy.

Given the juxtaposition of yesterday, and the importance of the G8 meeting today, I found this prayer, the psalm prayer for Psalm 59 (today’s psalm) in Celebrating Common Prayer providentially appropriate.

Stand, O strong and merciful God,

against all oppression

and with all who are oppressed;

against the triumph of evil

and against the complacency of your people;

establish in Christ Jesus

your new order of generosity and joy.
