Sunday Prayer

Delightful Breath,
merciful Relation,
generous Body,

We celebrate the gift of the new day
and the opportunities of community.
With the tall oaks we praise your strength;
with the winding rivers we sing the songs of heaven.

Behind and before,
beneath and betwixt,
You are here.

We pray over the mourning and the lonely
the struggling and the disenfranchised
in mind and body and spirit, that they — that we —
might not be crushed if afflicted, not despairing if perplexed.

Deepen our breath,
mend our relationships,
sustain our bodies for hope.

We stretch out to you and to one another,
honest about our transgressions and pains,
eager to be healed and to support healing.
We say in faith, “Here I am,” trusting that:

behind and before,
beneath and betwixt,
You are here.
