O LORD our God,
you who make the heavens sing,
you who comfort weary hearts,
we tremble in awe
at your thunder and
we sigh in gratitude for your grace.

When we are frightened,
you are our courage.
When we are overwhelmed,
you are our rock.
When our souls are hungry,
you are our daily manna.
When our spirits are thirsty,
you are our eternal wellspring.

Lend your Spirit to hear our grief and longing,
our despair over violence and devastation.
[add prayers of concern]

Send your angels to share our joy and love,
our hope for Creation’s healing and vibrancy.
[add prayers of thanksgiving]

For all things,
you are enough.
Through all things,
you are our God.
We tremble in awe
at your beauty and
we sigh in gratitude for your unfailing presence.

Again and again,
amen.
