Ezekiel 36:22-32

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space seeking your cleansing. You expose the dirt of our long journeys in the wilderness where we have strayed far from you. We want to do all the talking and share our dirt with you, telling you where we need your healing. But you invite us to be silent, as you reveal the deep cleansing you have planned for us. You encourage us to listen and follow you.

Yahweh, your name is holy and sacred. You are the God of faithfulness and integrity. Thank you that you forgive us and cleanse us from our impurities and idols. Thank you, Life-giving Spirit, for dwelling in us and guiding us to follow decrees of Yahweh that lead to life. Thank you for our relationship with you and providing for all our needs.

I listen to understand you today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

Your refreshing rain is upon us, Yahweh. We see what you are doing in the lives of those around us, and realize that we are receiving your cleansing too. You are cleaning us; you are cleaning your house. You are our great healer.

With joy we praise you!
