Leading up to the Special Council on Human Sexuality in April, the Reformed Church in America has published a series of 21 devotionals to help the denomination and participants prepare. We encourage all Room for All supporters to sign up to receive these devotionals via email and follow along as we pray for the church and particularly those LGBTQ people who are participating.
In addition, Room for All has commissioned a series of 21 Inclusive Prayers and Devotionals written by supporters and friends of Room for All to coincide with and complement the RCA’s series. We will publish those here on OUTsights over the next 21 days.
These readings and prayers are solely the words and opinions of each guest writer and do not necessarily reflect the views of Room for All, their staff, or the board.
A Prayer for the Special Council
Lord of radical inclusion and life-changing miracles, be with those gathered in Chicago today.
For all things said and left unsaid, for the heaviness of personal stories, for the disparate and often volatile viewpoints that can be brought forward on this topic, bring peace.
Let all those present lean into the grace you’ve freely offered, extending that grace to those around them and to themselves.
Prepare the hearts and minds of the council and the Group of Five leaders to discern your will.
Please, Lord, provide for each one the emotional, mental, and physical strength and rejuvenation to carry out this important work.
In your name,
