Prayer for this Church

prayer11O God, make the door of this house
Wide enough to receive all who
need human love and fellowship;
Narrow enough to shut put all envy, pride and strife.
Make its threshold smooth enough
to be no stumbling block to children, nor to straying feet,
But rugged and strong enough to turn back the tempter’s power.
God make the door of this house the gateway to thy divine kingdom.
