Dear God –
We gather around tables, we invoke Your name and then we begin.
We listen. We speak. We raise our hands in affirmation. We caffeinate. We take notes. We decide. And in all these things, we are striving after You – straining to know Your will for us.
Bless the work we are to do. In the busyness and business, in the buzz and in the boredom, be with us, we pray. Amen.
