Lord of all times and season,
You are to be praised
in the rhythm of the turning earth
and in the beat of life
as creation moves from youth
through passing ages.
You are to be worshipped
in the voices of those
who have told us of Your promise
and offered examples of living in faith
for those who have known them.
You are to be adored
in the promise of what tomorrow may bring
as the hope of all that could be
is laid before us.
Disturbing us with Your Holy Spirit
You do not allow us to settle with what is familiar.
Instead You disturb us
so that Your creation may become
all that You long for it to be.
Lord of all,
our lives can become crowded
as distractions fill our hearts and minds
drawing our attention from You.
Forgive for the things we say and do
that hurt You and other people.
you draw us closer to You
and offer us new ways in which
to love and serve You.
Enable our lives
to reflect You
that we may bring joy to Your heart
in Christ’s name.
