FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Holy God, Prince of Peace;
Emmanuel, God with us;
Wonderful Counsellor –
Loving God of many names
we bring our whole selves to you:
the whole of us, known by you before birth,
the whole of us, known before naming.
You know and love us beyond
label, pedigree, lineage or genetics.
In, and through your holy name
we pray for all scarred or killed
because of their name,
and ask your blessing on all
new–borns named before you today.
