Epiphany Prayer 18 (Day 368)
O God, we turn from our rest toward our rising, singing always your praises within our hearts. Our spirits rise on the wings of hope; our trust in You is a warm wind at our backs. Lead us, O Savior, into wisdom and truth; arm us with love and gentleness.
Let us never treat tender hearts with impatience, but attend to each other with care and integrity. Forgive us our foolishness, and call us into wholeness. Cleanse our intentions, so that all we do, we do in love and reverence.
O God, our spirits rest within your hand; lighten the burdens of those we now name.
