Good and Gracious God,
We lift your name on high, like a blanket of praise. Thank you for being present and embracing a fallen world. Thank you for this grace that flows endlessly to us each day, Lord, we celebrate your love for us, as we lay our burdens down at the foot of the cross. For those who are sick or have physical needs and surgical procedures we ask for healing. For all those in conflict, anxious and burdened we pray they may come to know peace as they lean on you. We extend our prayers for our Households of Faith, may they know the love and care of this church that they call home. We invite your beautiful holy spirit to move freely amongst us. Come dwell in each of our hearts as we strive to be disciples of healing and hope.
Thank you that even as our grief is raw and deep we can breathe in resurrection life. Lord, today we drink in once again the hope of eternal life and the promise of heaven. Thank you for your presence.
