This week, the words of friends & colleagues & strangers from across the RevGalBlogPals’ webring knit themselves together to hold each and all in prayer and to encourage our faithfulness in living:

O God, the great Creator of all that is,
the Lord of life and love,
we give you thanks for all of your goodness.
(from April Yamasaki)

Teach us to reveal your holy, tender love
throughout all we do and say:
open our hearts like children to your wisdom.
(from Be Thou My Vision)

May light rest within [our] words
as air is within the balloon.
(from Consider the Lilies)

[Hear] us when we cry out,
when we are silent, and
when we use groanings too deep for words.
(from matterofprayer)

Make our breath today
a giving and receiving of love.
(from Janet Salbert)

Amen.
