|Singing to a national song in sign language.|
Holy One, we gather before You in praise and in prayer, for we know that prayer changes things.
As we breathe in your presence, O God, change our hearts, that we may let go of all that separates us from You and each other.
Change our perspective, that we may see with new eyes, and rejoice at your steadfast love revealed in creation.
Change our path, that we may walk in love, leaving behind the thickets of sin and suspicion that seek to ensnare us.
Renew a right spirit within us, that we may build a new life of service and discipleship, your kingdom to come.
Blessed Savior, abide within us, and bless and keep those for whom we pray.
