|Half Dome, Yosemite Valley.|
Lord Jesus, we bend the knees of our hearts before You, and seek to give you thanks and honor with all our being.
O God, You are our Rock: place us in the cleft of your protection as the storms of life pass by us, we pray. You set us upon the Higher Ground of your love and faithfulness, and we trust in your mercy and loving-kindness.
Deliver us from hardness of heart, and guide us into forgiveness and compassion, to walk in the Way of Jesus. Let us walk gently upon the earth and gently with each other, as You, O Holy One, have taught us. United in our love for You, O Spirit of the Living God, we offer our souls, our selves, and our prayers before You.
Remembering your goodness, abiding in your promises of mercy, we lift up these beloveds before You.
