IMG_3967When you come to us in dreams, O God,
we feel joy in your presence –
our hearts encouraged,
our minds clearer,
our broken places healed.

When you come to us in dreams, O God,
we see a world made new –
all barriers broken down,
all people welcomed in,
all conflicts at an end.

When you come to us in dreams, O God,
we remember what you want from us –
to love one another,
to trust in your words,
to praise you wholeheartedly.

When we wake up to serve you, O God,
may we live out your dream –
of peace fully realized,
of justice completed,
of love without end.

Amen.
