Spirit of Life, God of Renewal, Jesus our Christ,

We sing your praises.
We celebrate your resurrection.
We continually seek your revelation.

Over disappointments, we pray
and we lift up our highest hopes, our dashed dreams,
our longings and ambitions that we struggle to realize.
We seek your presence and your wisdom above all,
Spirit of Life, God of Renewal, Jesus our Christ.

We sing your praises.
We celebrate your resurrection.
We continually seek your revelation.

Over misunderstandings, we pray
and we seek forgiveness for divisions between us,
we pray repair and justice for the impact of harm.
We seek your presence and your love above all,
Spirit of Life, God of Renewal, Jesus our Christ.

We sing your praises.
We celebrate your resurrection.
We continually seek your revelation.

Over change and transformation, we pray
and we hold in gentleness our uncertainty and fear,
we hold with grace mysteries and endings and deaths.
We seek your presence and your peace above all,
Spirit of Life, God of Renewal, Jesus our Christ.

We sing your praises.
We celebrate your resurrection.
We continually seek your revelation.

Go with us in life, we pray,
even as we vow to journey with one another.
You are our Constant Companion and our
Source of Inspiration, now and forever. Amen.
