A PRAYER OF JOHN HEUSS

Almighty God, King of kings, who has called us into a kingdom not of this world; send forth, we pray, your Spirit unto the dark habitations of guilt and woe. Reach the heart of every oppression, and make arrogancy dumb before you. Still the noise of our strife and the tumult of the people. Put to shame the false idols of every heart. Carry faith to the doubting, hope to the fearful, strength to the weak, comfort to all who mourn. Commit your word, O Lord, to faithful witnesses, that your kingdom may speedily come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen. (from A Diary of Prayer compiled by Elizabeth Goudge, Coward-McCann, 1966)
