Famous quotes containing the word petitions:
“Please to put a nickel,
Please to put a dime.
How petitions trickle
In at Christmas time!”

“Christ has called us to new visions
Here to celebrate and praise,
Here confess our old divisions,
Here our peace petitions raise.
Come repentant, come forgiving,
Come in joy and hope and prayer.
Christ, once crucified, now living,
Bids us faith and love to share.”
—Jane Parker Huber (b. 1926)
