Lord, we come to you as we start this week with our intentions, seeking your mercy, we plead for your breath.
Breathe rain, Lord. Soaking, thorough, cleansing rain to quench the fires, to wash our hearts, our lips, our hands clean.
Breathe peace, Lord. Quiet the winds but stir up your church, send us out to work for your kingdom, help us to remember it is right in front of us.
Breathe justice, Lord. Soften our hard hearts, equip us with bravery and new energy. This battle rages on Lord and your children are tired.
Breathe comfort, Lord. For all we have lost, all that has been taken from us, all that we have had to leave behind, the crosses that we could not carry.
We thank you for Jesus, on this Holy Cross Day. We thank you for the gates of hell trampled down, for the kingdom we are called to usher in. Breathe on us Lord.
