A Prayer

Great and Awesome God,

You are the Great Spirit,

The source of dreams and prophecy,

The vision of life and love,

The beginning and end,

And all that we know in between.

Shine within us the mighty rays of your light,

And break open the source of your mercy in our souls.

You are tenderness and comfort,

Our souls’ most welcomed guest;

You are the sweetness and grace we long for.

We ask you to heal our wounds,

And lavish us with strength.

Melt away the walls that keep us from being at peace,

Guide our steps, and keep us faithful to your calling.
