prayer of anticipation and preparation

Holy One

who calls each beloved

who created life from clay and soil,

be with us as we prepare to gather in your creation

as your soil and breath

as your light and hope

in naming the suffering of our family across the globe

open our hearts and spirits and breath into us a renewed sense of purpose

love and determination

to speak with authority, conviction and peace

to hear with clarity, compassion and wisdom

to act with strength, courage and persistence

Guide our hands, hearts and words

so that as we gather together we illumine your Way

and incarnate your Will

to be ambassadors of grace.

amen.
