Steve Stockman's Kuyper benediction prayer

A Kuyper Benediction prayer written by Steve Stockman, minister of Fitzroy Presbyterian Church in Belfast, N. Ireland,  at Soulsurmise:

Lord, we have so often got stuck in the bawn,
Defending reductionist dogma
Instead of contributing
To the cutting edge of the contemporary issues of our day.
May we be a community of believers
That develops a vocational calling
Seeing every member as being in a vital missional place
In whatever they do in our city, society and world.
May we be a people who believe
That there is not one inch of our Universe
Over which Jesus doesn’t say, “This is Mine”
And may we be shaped and honed by the Holy Spirit
To be those who can restore, redeem and reform
Every inch of that Universe
Not to prove our greatness
But to make Jesus what he was, is and always will be
Lord of all!
