Thank you, Life-giving Spirit, for gently speaking to us and nudging us to let go of doing things our own way. Thank you for reminding us we are your beloved children. We stay close to you, so when we start to do things our own way, we hear your loving voice reminding us to walk in peace, patience, and love instead of vengeance and violence. We remember that you are the shepherd and you remain close to us, your sheep.
We enter your sacred prayer space with resolve. We resolve to be in this time of prayer with you. There are so many distractions in our day: the phone rings, we get emails and texts, and our circumstances demand our attention. But you call us out of our jobs and responsibilities to a new vocation. You call us to your purpose once again.
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.
Dress our wounds with your healing balm, Great Healer. We feel the relief of your miraculous ways. We marvel at your mystery. We will tell of your mercy and healing to all who will listen. Be in the ears of those to whom we speak, so nations will know that you are the one true God.
We the thirsty and hungry, come to you. You have provided your living water for us to be truly satisfied. We want for nothing. Let everything that has life and breath praise you. Let all created things sing songs of life and praise to you. Let the rocks cry out your name in thanksgiving!
