(inspired by Matthew 17:1-13)
O God, You reveal yourself to us again and again: come rest in our hearts and set them aflame for your service. Transform our hearts that they may lead us into deeper discipleship and worship. Send us out to honor and care for all within your creation: may we join with all living things in worshiping your Holy Name. Let us not just seek to remain on holy ground, but go forth, to proclaim the love of God in every act. Spread your mantle over those who are suffering in body, mind, or spirit, O Loving One. Grant your benediction and guidance for all who seek a clearer path through today.
