|Light in the darkness, Camp Phoenix, 2015.|
we find our home in your embrace:
accept the prayers of our hearts.
for seeking to exploit
rather than heal
the needs and hopes of others;
teach us to work for healing and shalom.
We trust in your abundant mercies,
O God Almighty,
and ask that you guide us
to walk always in light and truth.
We offer to You our selves,
soul and body,
heart and will,
and ask that you sanctify
and enlighten us.
Burnish us to shine in your kingdom
and reflect your glory
into the darkest corners of the world, we pray.
By the power of the Holy Spirit,
bless us and keep us
as we live and move in You,
and bless those we remember before You.
