Prayer for the Columbus City Council - May 29, 2012

"Gracious God
At a time when answers are few and questions abound,
help us to listen and seek the truth.
At a time when when all the world believes in scarcity,
help us see the abundance you offer.
At a time when parties are divided, 
help us see clearly that you are One.
At a time when the news often leads with bad, 
help us to see and celebrate the Good.
At a time when populations are mobile and Columbus continues to welcome new citizens,
help us to be great neighbors to new and old.
At a time when school is out for break,
help each of us to be teachers to the generations that follow.
At a time when leadership is at a premium in every arena, 
may this place and these persons be seen as leaders who put others first and seek the best for this great community.
And on the day after our nation marks a memorial for those who have served and sacrificed,
help us to always remember that our freedom to live, to govern, and to lead has been given us by you and kept for us by soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen and guardsmen.
Help us Lord, we pray. Amen."
Rev. Scott Hagan
