O Lord, you are our Lord.
Eternal God, you are our God.
Brother Jesus, you are the Savior.
Sweet Spirit, you are our Life.

Many days, O God, we do not know much — not much about crafting peace from war, not much about convicting the world’s greed of its sins, not much about reflecting you with consistency — but we know that you are God. You are the Only One.

By your grace, we believe and follow you.
In your presence, we are radiant.
To your glory, we strive to be  bold.
In your name, we do not lose heart.

Stay with us we pray, O Christ, for as much as we long to dwell in one place with you, life changes and moves and compels us in new ways: through pain and through joy, with outrage and with surprise, within ourselves and alongside others.

Stay with us, we can only pray.
Guide us through change.
Seize us with truth and hope.
Show us how to lose our lives in your life.

In all things, we are your beloved people, sisters and brothers together and images of your beauty. In all things, we are astounded and overwhelmed to gratitude. In all things, we hold fast to your name, and we pray by its power. Amen.
