Prayer of Petition: Romans 10

Here’s a prayer of petition (or opening prayer...or closing prayer) inspired by Romans 10: 8-13.  It was written by Ann Siddall, and posted on the Stillpoint Spirituality Center website.

(inspired by Romans 10:8-13)

O God,
may the faith within us get out,
onto our lips,
into our feet and hands,
through our hearts.

May what we sing and pray here in this place,
get past our inhibitions
and into our actions this week.

May the passion for your Gospel
burn within our hearts,
so that we cannot be silent
in the face of deception or injustice.

If old-fashioned ways of sharing faith
do not ring true to us,
then let us persist until we find ways to tell our story
that reveal Your presence in our lives.

Help us, God, please help us
to just get it out, not arrogantly,
but as our humble confession
of what we believe. Amen.
