Listening to a world of seven billion voices, I come to you O God

 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though the waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
Psalm 46:1-3

 

Voice 1 : Nations shall come to your light,
               and rulers to your shining brightness.
All :         As you judge the nations, O God,
               so do you reward all peoples, O God, with love and mercy.

 

Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice; the earth melts
Psalm 46:6

 

Read Mark 13:7-10 and 21-25; Reflect on God's peace; Pray for the nations of the world; Pray for Shechem community

To a world that searches
you are a lamp that shines,
to a world that is hungry
you are food that sustains,
to a world held captive
you are hope of release,
to a world that's broken
you are the one who restores,

to a world full of hate
you are love that forgives,
to a world that denies
you are truth that endures,
to a world without hope
you are a God of promise,
To you we bring our praise
God of wholeness, God of grace.

 

Voice 1 : Nations shall come to your light,
               and rulers to your shining brightness.
All :         As you judge the nations, O God,
               so do you reward all peoples, O God, with love and mercy.

 

The Lord Almighty is with us, the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Psalm 46:11
