THE PATHWAY TO GOD’S HEALING

And My people, who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Hymn of Gathering – “All Who Hunger, Gather Gladly”

Dunstan-Moore

 

All who hunger gather gladly; holy manna is our bread.

 

Come from wilderness and wandering. Here in truth we will be fed.

 

You who yearn for days of fullness, all around us is our food.

 

Taste and see the grace eternal. Taste and see that God is good.

 

 

 

All who hunger, never strangers, seeker be a welcome guest.

 

Come from restlessness and roaming, Here, in joy we keep the feast.

 

We who once were lost and scattered in communion’s love have stood.

 

Taste and see the grace eternal. Taste and see that God is good.

 

 

 

All who hunger, sing together; Jesus Christ is living bread.

 

Come from loneliness and longing. Here, in peace, we have been led.

 

Blest are those who from this table live their days in gratitude.

 

Taste and see the grace eternal. Taste and see that God is good.

Hymn of Commitment – “For the Healing of the Nations”

Kaan-Hughes

 

 

 

For the healing of the healing of the nations, Lord, we pray with one accord;

 

For a just and equal sharing of the things that earth affords;

 

To a life of love in action, help us rise and pledge our word.

 

Help us rise and pledge our word.

 

 

 

Lead us forward into freedom; from despair Your world release,

 

That, redeemed from war and hatred, all may come and go in peace.

 

Show us how through care and goodness fear will die and hope increase.

 

Fear will die and hope increase.

 

 

 

All that kills abundant living, let it from the earth be banned;

 

Pride of status, race or schooling, dogmas that obscure Your plan.

 

In our common quest for justice may we hallow life’s brief span.

 

May we hallow life’s brief span.

 

 

 

You, Creator God, have written Your great name on humankind;

 

For our growing in Your likeness bring the life of Christ to mind,

 

That by our response and service earth its destiny may find,

 

Earth its destiny may find.

Choral Benediction

 

 

 

This is My Prayer, O Ruler of All Nations

 

Let Thy reign come; on earth Thy will be done.

 

In peace may all earth’s people draw together,

 

And hearts united learn to live as one.

 

O hear my prayer, Thou God of all the nations;

 

Myself I give Thee; let Thy will be done.
