You created us and you knit us together. We know full well that
we are fearfully and wonderfully made
that we are loved
and that you are always with us.
Be with us now as we start this new season and process.
Be with our bodies – holding the promise of life.
Be with our minds – hold us to the truth.
Be with our hearts – hold to us to each other and to You.
Dear God – our creator and sustainer – fill our hopeful, anxious, dreaming, doubting, glad hearts to be open to our future and your presence with us, in us, and through us.
