Trinity Sunday Prayer

Dependent upon the grace of Christ,
certain of the love of God,
committed to fellowship by the Spirit,
we are bold in prayer for Your sake
(and for ours).

Hear, O God, the groan of creation and hear also its song.
Make our lives busy with the work of creation’s healing
until the rivers play again between the mountains and
the stars gather again the curious with their stories.

Like a bird building its nest and guarding its eggs,
O Christ, build up your people like a fortress of mercy
where peace is birthed, nurtured, strengthened and sent
to bless the earth and to love it as the life shared among us.

O Spirit, make us yours, we pray, as only You can:
with food and laughter, through tears and solidarity,
and by the common heartbeat of our thankful songs
make us faithful to one another in every generation.

Dependent upon the grace of Christ,
certain of the love of God,
committed to fellowship by the Spirit,
for Your sake and for ours we ask:

Let goodness dispel evil,
let hope break through despair,
let nurture erase the memory of violence,
and let mystery multiply our dreams with your praise.

In the name of God our Breath,
God our Life, and
God our Wisdom. Amen.
