Acts 27:13-38

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space with the confidence that we are not prisoners of this world. We seek your voice and reassurance that you are with us in the calm waters, and in the storms of life. Even the storms are calm in your presence; they are no concern of yours. The wind and waves know your name and obey your voice. You are our hope and joy at all times, and in all places.

Gracious loving God, it feels like our world is crumbling around us; there is no hope. You tell us to cut the ties to the lifeboats, so we are completely dependent on you. We hear you say, “Do not be afraid” and “eat.” Thank you for those in the boat with us. Thank you we can break bread together, which nourishes our bodies, our minds, and our spirits.

I place my hope in you today, O LORD, and thank you for…

Give us ears to hear your voice and mouths to speak your words and promises to our communities. Give us voices to sing your praises. Be in the hearts of all who we will meet today, and in the mouths of our Elders and guides who will bring your messages to us.

With joy we praise you!
