We enter your sacred prayer space to hear your voice and feel your peace. You have gone before us to prepare everything in advance. We have all we need because you know us so intimately. You have removed the old religious ways, the man-made requirements for pleasing God. You show us your new way.
Your hands are gentle upon us as you remove old and new dirt from our bodies, minds, and souls. We feel Life-giving Spirit’s breath drying and nurturing us like a summer breeze on our skin. Your forgiveness is perfect and complete in us. All praise to you!
We are content here in your embrace. but you call us to stand up from this seat of comfort. Yet, you do not send us away. No, you assure us that you are with us on this journey too. Your loving mercies and comfort will remain with us all our days.
We, your blessed people, are grateful for wisdom and understanding. Your wisdom is profitable and precious. Wisdom takes us on peaceful, pleasant paths. We choose wisdom and not folly. Thank you for your wisdom that gives us abundant living that builds community.
Thank you, Divine Family, that death could not hold Jesus Christ in its eternal grip. The tomb is empty, and the stone is rolled away. Today we take time to remember and ponder what Jesus has spoken. We will tell others of your goodness.
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.
