Heart of hearts, each day brings forth an awakening.
Your creation bursts with the enthusiasm of new life and potential, drawing us into the depth of beauty, mystery, and awe.
Your justice cracks the hardened shell of whitewashed history, releasing the hidden truth of untold stories.
Your love encourages tender hearts to take risks where trust has been broken.
Your mercy rouses complacent spirits to step into the cause of righteousness.
Your thunder rattles the landscape, exposing fault lines and toppling assumptions.
Your breath inspires voices to be raised and convictions to be emboldened.
Open every part of us that has been shut for fear of renewal and transformation, and awaken us to the possibility that awaits a world groaning for release and freedom.
