My Psalm 122

Abba, what joy I feel
when it is time to worship in your house,
among your people!

What a blessing it is to stand,
hands lifted high,
in your presence,
where you love to bless sincere worshipers.

Thank you, God, for such a place as The Loft,
spacious and comfortable,
where we can gather,
where we can praise your name
and learn your ways;
where we can listen like Samuel
and pray like Moses
and dance like David.

Thank you for the peace that surrounds us there,
even as we remember your Word
and pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
"May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels."

Let peace triumph in the Land of Israel,
and let it be found within all your churches.

And for the church in Oxford, especially, Lord,
prosper your people,
in Jesus' name,
