Martin Luther King – A Prayer for the Church


Martin Luther King Jr’s prayer for the church – a visual benediction.

We thank you for your church, founded upon your Word, that challenges us to do more than sing and pray,
but go out and work as though the very answer to our prayers depended on us and not upon you.

Keep us, we pray, in perfect peace.
Help us to walk together,
pray together,
sing together,
and live together
until that day when all God’s children
