|My friend Jackie is off to Duke Divinity School; may she be as blessed in her studies as she is a blessing to all.|
Holy One, let our prayer rise to You as the morning mist, let you blessing rise before us with the sun. Let us open our hearts before you in meditation: let our minds be centered within your Word. Let us breathe in the peace of God, that we may walk in love and compassion with all beings.
Guide us, Blessed Savior, in paths of wisdom and faithfulness, that we may serve You this day. Imbue us with a spirit of humility that we may work for justice and healing in the world. Send the balm of your Holy Spirit over all who lift their cares before You, O God, especially those we now name.
