"We pray for the Integrity Organization......

From Louie Crew.......
The late Rev. David Tarbet, a former Integrity Board  member, wrote these intercessions to be prayed at his funeral:

From "A Service of Thanksgiving for the Life of David Blalock Tarbet
 March 6, 1941 -- March 4, 2010" at Trinity/Houston on March 11, 2010.

We pray for the Integrity Organization and all Christian gay people, that we
may have courage, integrity, and love; that we may meet our enemies with
dignity and win them as friends; that we may have strength to withstand the
temptation of wealth, power and lust; that we may be unselfish, loyal and responsible in all our relationships; that our people may be free from fear,
prejudice and oppression; and that you may abide with us and share with us
the love and joy no one can take away from us.

Hear us, Lord

Thanks be to Almighty God, our heavenly Father, the fount of eternal joy,
for in his love and mercy, he created David a gay person, to experience his
love and joy and to see his dear son Jesus in those with whom he shares this

Hear us, Lord
