Almighty God, we lift up our eyes from all our worries and concerns, and behold your glory everywhere. The heavens proclaim your praises in the midnight sky as it subsides into dawn. The birds sing alleluias to the sun as the light reveals your manifold gifts you bestow with an open and generous hand. The scent of lilacs on the breeze acclaim your grace and compassion.
Draw us into the life You intend for us, O God: to walk in justice, gentleness, and mercy throughout all our days. Let our lives testify to the healing love of Christ: may we allow your grace to sink into our bones and animate our hearts. Draw into your embrace those for whom we pray, for we know You are always near.
