O God, Breath of Life, we breathe in and out, forgetting millions of times a day that we draw on the Source of all breath. Our hurried, anxious breaths rush us along, and we long to breathe deeply, drawing from your Spirit. Held by creation’s wind, may we breathe in your spark, and remember who we are. May Jesus, who breathed his last in our midst, soothe us into divine rest. As your Spirit fills our tired lungs, draw us deeper into You, we pray. Amen.
Mary Austin is the pastor of Gaithersburg Presbyterian Church, a multi-cultural church in the Washington, DC area.
