MorningPrayer Wednesday

Dear God,
You have stirred me and swirled me. Folded me and rolled me.
I am colors of the rainbow and the dark of night.
I am both seen and unseen.
You have cast me in the air and caught me like the wind.
I am knighted, saved, healed, condemned and forgiven.
I am your child of light, your living legacy.
I am of the earth and I bow low.
I am yours.

MorningPrayer Tuesday

Dear God,
Morning softness flows from hill to hill,
Quiet glory rising from leaf to mist.
How gentle is thy loving touch,
the day to present, our breath prepare.
This moment to recall
When crows caw and motors hum.

MorningPrayer Monday

Dear God,
Hold fast to us in the evening waters of our life.
 Float us in the shallow tide of warm ripples and snug us down in the sands of time. 
We know we can not drift to far from your presence for wherever we go, you are there. 
Your embrace is beauty and truth, light and warmth, joy and peace. 
In you and on you, we find our rest.

MorningPrayer Saturday

Dear God,
We are not promised only sunlight and peace in our lives.  For once alive, we experience the totality of human emotion and passion; joys and sorrows. So, may we be realistic in our expectations, but always hopeful and prayerful in our dreams. May we have the strength to endure the pain and the laughter to enjoy the dance. In all things, we know that you are with us. Your comfort and the hem of your garment sustain us. With thankful heads we bow. AMEN

MorningPrayer Friday

Dear God,
For flowers abundant growing
For blossoms colorful exploding.
For generosity spilling from your heart
Anointing earth
Bringing life to our frozen selves.
We are grateful.
We give praise.
See, smell, taste
The fragrance.
Jesus anointed with oil.

MorningPrayer Wednesday

Dear God,
Our world in a dew drop,
Caught in the morning sun.

What do we perceive and know?
How do we understand that which is available to our senses?

And  beyond what we understand,
underneath below the scene,
Is the  mystery and awe of the unexplained.

That of life and growth
beginnings and endings,
love and purpose.

MorningPrayer Tuesday

Dear God,
No wall, no matter how finely crafted or strong of stone it might  be, can keep you out of our hearts.  As the Psalmist says,' We cannot hide from your spirit", for you only desire the very best for us: you whisper, roar, plead, invite, communicate with us, asking for permission to love and offer infinite grace. So, help us to dismantle the walls and be open and vulnerable to you; and then, our joy will be complete. AMEN
