Holy God, who grounds our hearts in love and calls us to faithful hope, we worship You. We turn to You, O God, as the round Earth turns from sleep to awakening, and stirs itself to praise: alleluia! Heal our hearts of bitterness, and forgive us for seeking to hurt others in our own anger. Let the waters of your grace pour over us and restore us, O Merciful One, like rain on a parched field. Refresh the bodies and spirits of the faithful and the seeking, Lord Christ, for we find our wholeness in you. Remembering your abundant mercy, Lord, we place our concerns at your feet as we pray.
