Make Us

A prayer for Oak Life:

Make us a refuge
A shelter from the storm
A warm embrace
For those who are cold
A light on the way
That guides us home
A healing place
Where no wounds remain

And though the night
Will surely come
Nothing can take
Away your love

Make us a source
Of life for those worn out
Where heavy burdens
Are shared and carried
Where our scars find their home
In your healing touch
An honest place
For outcasts and saints

And though the night
Will surely come
Nothing will take
Away your love

There is no distance you can’t cross
You find us, you always will
And in your presence we are found
No matter how lost we are
Your love will carry us
Through the darkest nights
To your light

Make us your vessels
Of peace and justice
Deepest compassion
For all those loveless
A foretaste of heaven
For those in hell
A people of
Faith, hope, and love
