Welcome to Abington Presbyterian Church

A Prayer for the Emmanuel AME Church from Presbytery of Philadelphia Leadership:

"O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not listen? Or cry to you 'Violence!' and you will not save? Why do you make me see wrongdoing and look at trouble?" Habakkuk 1:2-3

 

God of Peace, we once again are unsettled and bewildered, crying out on behalf of those whose lives have been unjustly taken by others blinded by racism and hardened to difference. We grieve and lament yet another time, no longer surprised by the hatred and ignorance that has become our oppressive norm. We are wearied by generations of perceived progress slowed in an instant by tragedy and terror. We are angered by the bigotry that corrodes the conscience of our citizens and breeds in our communities. We echo the timeless plea, “How Long?,” as we wait and hope and dare to anticipate deliverance from troubling violence that surrounds us on all sides. Faithful God, draw near. Draw near to the family and friends of the nine who died as they worshipped, prayed, and studied your Word. Draw near to the congregation and community who grieve the loss of their pastor, civic leaders, and beloved residents. Draw near to those we know as enemies, transform their hearts and minds too often twisted around hatred and violence. Draw near to all of us burdened by rage. Lead us to be agents of change and advocates of renewal. Along the way, listen to our laments, be with us in our angst, and assure us that death does not have the last word. All the more, hasten the day when violence and injustice are no more.

 

In the name of the Crucified and Resurrected Christ, Amen.
