O God, Go Before Us: A Prayer Based on Exodus 14:19-20

A 21st Century Worship Resource for the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost, Year A
by Safiyah Fosua

O God, go before us.
Like a cloud that shields us from the hot sun
And a fire that gives light for the way,
Go before us we pray.

O God, go behind us.
Like a cloud that hides us from our enemies,
Or a fire that wards off the wild things,
Go behind us, we pray.


People in Unison:
God before us,
God behind us,
God within us,
God our way through the flood.
Lead us,
Guide us,
Shield us,
Defend us
This day. Amen.
