|Dry grasses rustle with the wind, reminding us of the Breath of God breathing new life everywhere.|
You are near, O God. We seek to draw close as well. Through the night watches we have sought You between dreams. We thank You, Loving One, for your word in which we trust. We meditate upon your promises, for You are always at our right hand when we need You. With our whole heart we call to You, for you redeem us and give us strength. Give aid, we pray for these whom we now name, that they may be comforted and praise your Name.
