A Prayer for the Faithifiers

Hilary Allen

Gracious One:
Keep watch on the innovators, the trailblazers, the takers of risk.

Invite us to be persons of vision and integrity.
Help us to remember the mystery from which possibility is born.
Lead us to honor the sacred space where ministries, idealists, and realists meet.

Encourage us to imagine more than just what is.
Fill our hearts in times of discouragement.
Keep our eyes on the long now.

Through our efforts, let us know the fruits of connection and a deeper faith.
