Prayers of hope  < 3 of 4 >


For those seekers
who put truth before comfort
and hope before security
we give thanks.

Grant us a wise man’s hope—
light in darkness,
use for our gifts,
God at the end.

For those we know
who do not know
we will find what we worship
we pray tonight

and for those we do not know
trying to understand
and needing wisdom
we pray tonight.

Written to follow the reading of Matthew 2, 1-12 in a series of visual Prayers of hope in the carol service at St John's, West Ealing in 2011, accompanied by visual images.
