Holy God, make us a city on a hill to your glory and pleasure. May all we do shine and point to Jesus. Keep us in your care and favor. Let the voice of mirth, and the spirit of gladness arise and thrive among us once again. May we see your glory and know your justice. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And this city shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth who shall hear of all the good that I do for them. They shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the prosperity I provide for it.” (Jeremiah 33:9 ESV)
