A prayer on the way to Jerusalem

Who may ascend the hill of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
Those who have clean hands and pure hearts.

O Living God,

yet you are closer than hands or feet.

In temples and in churches
people make sacrifices and offerings,
but what you seek
is the love and well-being of your children...
