Life-giving Spirit comes close and breathes into us. We join in breath-dancing with you. We feel creation join, and feel peace and oneness.
We hear your invitation to draw near and listen to you. Only you can satisfy our souls; only you can provide the best of the best. Thank you that your thoughts are not our thoughts, and your ways are not our ways. Thank you for meditating on how much you love us.
We celebrate the kindness you have shown to all creation, Mighty Yahweh. Your gentleness and mercy are all around us. Guide us, so we will continue to learn and practice your honourable ways in all we do.
We enter your sacred prayer space as sheep of your flock who are coming home. We were once scattered throughout the lands, but you called us to return to you. Our ancestors were driven from their comfort and depended on you in foreign lands. We learned from them how to trust in you. Now, in your perfect timing, you have returned us to you, as an answer to their prayers and your promise.
Today, we invite you to reread, rest and reflect on the prayers of the past week.
Lectionary Readings for Today:
There is no waiting on you, Gracious Creator. You call us to come now, as we are. We come together as your family. Even if we are broken, tired, sick, hungry, hurting, lonely, grieving or doubting, we come to you now. Healed, healthy, rested, restored, joyful or faithful; we come to you now. We have come from all directions and walks of life to gather together in thanksgiving.
