Spent wisteria blossoms scattered over a stone patio

Holy One,

In a moment of spent blossoms and memories of yesterday, remind us that You are the God of all time. All of our pasts, all of our futures, all of our present lives are in Your hands.

Where we have doubts, hold anger against our neighbors, and act in our own self-interests, convict us by Your Spirit.

Where we have memories that haunt and traumatize us, heal us.

Where we are stuck in our preferences and prejudices, free us with Your fresh wind, fresh fire.

Light the flame of change and purpose within us, we pray.

Blessed be.
