Holy God,
Be with us.
Be with us in the quiet.
Be with us in the chaos.
Be with us in our routines.
Be with us when change comes.
Be with us.

sunset-100367_640Awaken us, God of Life.
Awaken us to your glory.
Awaken us to your grace.
Awaken us to your presence.
Awaken us to our neighbors’ needs.
Awaken us.

Merciful God, stir us.
Stir us with compassion.
Stir us to act with justice.
Stir us out of complacency.
Stir us to give thanks in all things.
Stir us.

Hear us, God of Hope.
Hear our broken hearts.
Hear our rejoicing communities.
Hear our longing for rest and renewal.
Hear our sighs too deep for words.
Hear us.

Loving God,
Be with us in this moment.
Awaken us to your desires.
Stir within us and around us.
Hear all that we leave unsaid.
Love us.

We pray, God of all,
In gratitude for your steadfast love
In gratitude for your call for justice
In gratitude for your presence
In gratitude for your claim on us
We pray.

Amen.
