Here is the prayer I used in Prague, inspired by the stories of Jacob at Bethel and Peniel, please feel free to use it if it is helpful:
We have reached a certain place, a physical place, a temporal place and here, O God, we seek to glimpse your glory.
We come to this place bringing with us all that has shaped us thus far, failure and success, fear and hope, doubt and faith, vision and dream.
We find ourselves in the house of God, at the gate of heaven, not because this place is more sacred than another, but because you meet us here, where we are, who we are, how we are.
We praise you for the mystery of your presence with us
We thank you for bringing us safely this far
And now, as we look ahead to the future
We seek a fresh encounter with you.
As we look heavenwards, we are aware that you reach earthwards
Reaching out to heal and renew what sin and greed would destroy
Offering hope and a future where fear and death abound
Sharing the pain and sorrow, vulnerability and limitation of our lives,
Walking among us, dying for us, defeating evil and destroying death.
Our future is as yet unknown to us
The challenges that will face us
The questions that will perplex us
The emotions that will stretch us
Yet, as we stand on the edge of tomorrow
We dare to seek the privilege of wrestling with God
Discerning your mind
Heeding your will
Following your call
So that we, like Israel, may limp towards eternity in the footsteps of Christ
In whose name we pray.
