Psalm 42:1-11

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space to find peace in your presence. You are our peace in the darkness; you are our dry land in the flood. Your Holy Way is pure and true. We look to the horizon and hear the thunder of your presence. We feel you rumble in the air around us as you move about in our presence. We hear a voice from the wilderness declare, “Behold, your God is with you.” We rise with all creation to reverently worship you.

The noise and pressure to buy more gifts, make more baking, do more, and be more, is loud and distracting. Some of us feel tired and worn out from the pressure. Some may feel disillusioned and question our beliefs. Thank you for calling out to us, calling to our deep inner beings. Our souls long for you. These feelings and thoughts bring to our attention that we long for you. We put our hope in you. You are our joy.

I feel your glory all around me today, Mighty Yahweh, and thank you for…

We see you with us in the light of day; when we wake in the night, you are here to comfort us. You call to us; Life-giving Spirit calls to the depths of our hearts, and our thoughts turn to you. Others tell us to give up on you. But at every turn, you are with us. We find peace in your presence. 

With joy we praise you!
