|Sunrise while traveling.|
our times are in your hand,
and we rise today upheld by your love:
hear our prayers and praises, we humbly pray.
Strengthen us in your goodness and mercy, Holy One,
that we may see anew the unity and beauty of your creation.
Gather our restless hearts within your care, Lord Christ,
and help us to lean into your embrace in faithful trust.
Teach us to walk in charity and gentleness,
that we may honor the dignity of all whom we meet.
By the power of the Holy Spirit,
make us worthy testimony to your grace, O God,
and your healing ways.
Extend the hand of blessing
over all we remember before You, Lord,
as we offer our prayers for these beloveds.
