You lead us, God, with miracle and grace;
we follow in your train of thought and calling.
With you we move in hope from place to place
and practise what shall be, for you have set us free.

We give you thanks for all we’ve seen and heard,
but also for your future, never fearing
to stay within the earshot of your Word:
Word that divides, creates, unsettles and unites.

Then make us of your beck and call aware,
help us accept the cost of ‘kingdom-living’,
the risk of our becoming who we are:
God, use our faith and doubt, unite us, lead us out.
