Heavenly Father you hold our lives in your hands.
Who we were, who we are and who we are becoming.
This church has been a place where we have grown
in knowledge and love of you, and learned to serve.
Grant us joy in what has been, grace for our regrets,
peace in our fears and joy in what you will make us.
May we see your kingdom come in this city
and build your church to be a light in the darkness,
and a home in the wilderness.
May we plant seeds that grow to bless others
and leave the city more beautiful than we found it.
