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
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!
