Refresh us! Photo credit: Rev. Deb Vaughn

Refresh us, O God.
Refresh our tired and hurting hearts,
for we are crushed, torn, angry, and lost
without your encouraging touch.

Refresh us, O God.
Refresh our words and attitudes,
for we have said far too much (or not enough)
and wounded our fellow humans.

Refresh us, O God.
Refresh our churches, our friendships, our relationships,
for we have lost patience with one another
and forget we are woven together as one.

Refresh us, O God.
Refresh our dreams and visions,
for we have lost sight of your Calling
and forgotten you lead the way.

Refresh us, O God.
Refresh our perspectives and our insights,
for the beauty of Creation is beneath our feet
and waits for us to kneel in adoration.

Refresh us, O God.
Refresh us.
Amen.
