House of Deputies voting prayers

The Rev. Lester MacKenzie led the House of Deputies in prayer before each vote on marriage resolutions.

Peace perfect peace perfect peace.

Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.

Jesus Christ, our Lord, our God.
Draw near and be present with us.
Fan our hearts, minds and bodies with your cooling Spirit
We breath in love and patience
We breath out anxiety and tension.
Remind us to see your hope and face in each other.
Fill this space, this house with your tenderness.

Peace perfect peace perfect peace.


Come Lord Jesus Come –

Loving Christ let us ever be mindful of your presence.
Trusting in you, we join one another as a community
Let us never lose hope. You affirmed that you your fathers house has many rooms.
May our bonds be strong
in Faith…
in Love…
and in our Desire to be ever mindful of your presence.

Come Lord Jesus Come – opening chorus by artist Kutless, song All who are Thirsty.
