Common Prayer for OWS

Minister Annie Allen, Program Associate and Coordinator of Training for Communities of Shalom at Drew, asked the Occupy Wall Street protest crowd to hold hands and pray this prayer together: 

There is Power in Prayer

Let us hold hands, touch 


somebody


Let us Pray all Together


Holy, Gracious, Loving God


You want Justice for your people


We want Justice for your people


Holy God you act though your children


We are your Children


Rain your spirit into this place


Lord Rain your spirit into our souls


Your Spirit is blowing – Hallelujah!


Lord, we need your justice and your peace.


Please Raise the Lowly and bring down the mighty


As you love us – Let us love one another


As you provide for us – let us provide for one another


We pray for all who are suffering


We ask for your patience, wisdom and strength


Help us create your kingdom on earth


Thank you God, for loving us


Thank you God, for being with us


And the Church says…


Amen. Amen. Amen!
