O loving God, you have been with us on this journey to the celebration of Jesus coming to our world. You are always with us, even when we do not acknowledge or listen to You. You fill us with your love and your breath. You are eternal; we are a moment. We are your creation, which you say is good and prove the goodness of creation and humankind by sending your son into our world. Your way brings peace and joy.

Where can we go that you have not already been? You are firstborn of all that is, has been, and ever will be. You were in the beginning with Life-giving Spirit when she breathed life into the darkness and over the waters, when creation was born. You walked through the gates of death to everlasting life so we could know that with you all things are possible.

We cast our idols and tools of worship at your feet, LORD. We worship only you. We seek only you. We celebrate only you. Life-giving Spirit breathes around us and over our cast-away items. We feel Spirit’s cleansing within and without, and our items are shiny and new. You call us to pick up our instruments and tools and use them in a good way – in your way – to worship you and lead others on the journey. There is now only you, LORD. We praise you for your goodness and new life.

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your holy prayer space and feel relief that you have already prepared everything for us. You draw close to us and whisper softly, “remember to remember the teachings I have placed within you. Practice them and believe in the agreement I have made to forget your sins and evil ways.” We hear your voice and feel glad.

O Loving Yahweh, the world is so loud telling us to do more! Buy more! And the environment and pandemic are getting worse. The world says there is no god or God has abandoned us. The world wants to rob us of our joy. But in this moment, we breathe in your life-giving breath and listen to what you tell us in our innermost beings. We hear your gentle whisper reminding us that you are with us, you will save us and make us strong. You are faithful and trustworthy. Thanks to you all-loving, nurturing God for remembering us.
