BOS flowerGod we come
ready to listen
waiting to hear Your still speaking voice

Send Your Spirit to fall afresh on us
To break open those closed places in our hearts
And soften those hardened places in our souls
And heal those troubled places in our minds
So that we might hear You above the noise of our fears
The distraction of our pain
The clatter of our anger

God we trust You on this day
To guide us in the things that make for life
Fullness of life
So that as Your people we might face this day
Renewed for the work of Kin-dom building
Peacemaking, Love sharing, Justice demanding
