O God, we rise from our beds with your seal upon our hearts: accept our offered prayers.
Sometimes we fear we are sinking: if we are going to sink, let us sink into your embrace, O Holy One. Sometimes we fear we are lost: if we are going to get lost, let us get lost in the beauty of Your creation. Sometimes, we are doubtful: If we are going to doubt, let it draw us closer to faith.
Lord Christ, you know the struggles we encounter: move into the chambers in our hearts and fill them with grace. Be our companion and comfort, O Spirit, in the chances and changes that confront us.
Mindful of all blessings, and in unity with each other in good times and bad, we lift our prayers before You, O Almighty.
