Ah holy God, you find us
in the wilderness,
under the fig tree,
day by day by day.

You find us and you test us
to learn if we can be faithful,
to discern if we know how to repent,
day by day by day.

You test us and you call us
across the sea,
throughout the night,
day by day by day.

You call us and you fashion us
with eyes for a new vision,
with foolishness for a new faith,
day by day by day.

Be found even as you find, O God,
in word and deed,
in bread and in being,
this day and always. Amen.
