Father, make of us a city on a hill, shouting your story, shining forth your glory. Make of us a joy to your heart, praising you before all nations, telling of your great goodness and blessing. Make us a strong tower in your name to the broken, the fatherless, the homeless, the needy and the lost. Draw us all closer together and closer to you. I pray in the precious name and powerful authority of Jesus, who came to seek and save the lost, 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)
