Prayer 1445- under the shadow of God's wings
Eternal One, in peace and gratitude we rise to praise You, giving thanks for your manifold blessings.
You are our home and our strength, Lord Christ: May we ever behold the beauty of your creation, and sing out our wonder and joy.
May we see the works of your hands made manifest in the loving hearts we encounter, and be glad.
May we root ourselves in faith and hopefulness, praising your love throughout each day, uplifted by your Spirit.
May we be guided by compassion for all living things, and walk gently upon the earth and with each other.
Guide us and sanctify us, keeping us close under the shadow of your wings, reveling in the embrace of the Almighty.
Pour out your comfort and strength over those who call upon You, especially those we now name.
