snowGod of Breath

Remind us to breathe as we move from one season to the next. Some holy and some just wholly exhausting.

God of Breath

Remind us to breathe as we listen to news that is too often not good. Cause us to hear with hearts determined to beat to the call of love even while broken.

God of Breath

Remind us to breathe deeply. Expanding and creating space in our very beings. Making room for new energy, renewed conviction, and renewing hope as we fully live into and give of ourselves on this day.

God of Breath

With profound gratitude, we take each breathe and in radical trust, we exhale…slowly and fully…

Amen
