A Prayer By Karl Barth

karlbarthpipe

O Lord, our God! Thou knowest who we are: human beings with a good or bad conscience, some content and others discontent, some secure and others insecure, convinced Christians and nominal Christians, believers, half-believers, and unbelievers.

Thou also knowest whence we have come: from the bonds of family and friendship or from great loneliness, from peaceful prosperity or from manifold adversities and troubles, from happy, tense or broken homes, from the core of the Christian community or from its fringe.

Here we are gathered now in thy presence: in all our diversity equally unrighteous before thee and each other, equally subject to death, equally lost without thy mercy, yet also equally sharing the promise and the gift of thy grace offered to all in thy dear Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
