We pause and become aware of Life-giving Spirit’s heart pumping the blood of Christ through us and over us. O Spirit of Truth, speak, for we are listening with active listening. Thank you for guiding us in truth and preparing us for what is yet to come.
Even before we knew we needed you, you were calling to us and coming to our aid. You know everything about us. You know our hearts’ desires. Only when we draw near to each other in your sacred prayer space, do we begin to understand. You encourage us to remember the first time we met and how you invited us to participate in your mystery.
You call us to your new way, to walk your new path. You reveal your desire for us to remain in you and always seek you, even when we find ourselves in foreign lands. We keep our eyes on you and ask for your strength to resist the temptations from those who do not know you or your ways.
Thank you, Loving Yahweh, for loving us just as we are, even when we sin. We know what is right and want to do as you want for us, but we do it on our own. It is a battle of the will. We fail when we do it on our own. The more we try to do it on our own, the worse it gets. Thank you, God, that we are delivered through Jesus Christ, our LORD and that the Holy Spirit speaks to us.
We see creation’s splendour and beauty. You withhold nothing, giving freely to all creation and to us. Give us wisdom to learn creation’s way, to give you praise and honour, and to receive in return the fullness of your love and grace.
