Prayer for Vermilion: Response to Psalm 122
In my last blog, I wrote about the psalms I wrote as a response to a study I had done on the Psalms of Ascent. Tonight I thought it was fitting to post the one I wrote for my city. I live on Lake Erie in a small town that has a river running through the middle of it. This winter has been brutal. Due to a recent warm-up and lots of rain, we are currently under a flood warning for our river.
Prayer for Vermilion
I was glad when God brought me back to Vermilion.
I am glad that my feet are planted here.
Vermilion is a beautiful place, with beautiful people
that needs God’s help to face the challenges she faces –
social, economical, and political.
I pray for the peace of Vermilion.
I pray for those that belong to You that live in Vermilion;
Prosper them, keep them, protect them.
May peace be within her borders
May peace be within the walls of our church
Because of the name of the Lord
I will seek and pray for the good of Vermilion.
