Holy God,
Rain down on us.
Wash over us with your grace
as we move from place to place,
and show us again and again
the witness of your love
in our lives
and in our world
Carry us
with the wings of your Spirit
to those who need to hear
that we all, broken and worn,
are welcomed and invited
into your promised Rest.
And in these moments of waiting
and separation
and unanswered questions,
in these days of confusion and grief
and loss,
show us your cleansing power
and grant us your peace.
Blessed be
Amen.
