Mosaic Gathering Prayer: April 14, 2019
God, Creator of our world, artist of our hearts, author of our stories, we come to you with tired bones and white knuckles, as we attempt to hold on so tightly to what isn’t ours.
We acknowledge your presence as it fills this room through the breath from our lungs.
You are the beginning and the end, we come to You.
You feel our anxieties and you see our struggle. You know the weight of what we carry, let us let You lighten this load.
Lord, relieve us.
Help us to see You in every space of our hearts, stories, and individual worlds. In the spaces that may be seen but also in the unseen.
Lord, reveal to us.
Let us be in awe of the immensity of your Spirit. Let the vastness of your love, overwhelm us.
Lord, inspire us.
Meet us in the darkness where our questions cast shadows, may the light of your love draw us in close.
Lord, lead us.
As we come together with others in community, reveal to us your beauty through the hearts you gave them.
Lord, pursue us.
Let us pay attention to your meticulous detail and care as the robust colors of Spring reveal themselves.
Lord, show us.
May we never take for granted your intimate nearness. May we see, hear, and feel you all around us. Unite us together through the shared struggles and joys of our lives. As we seek, we find our identities in You, everlasting strength and infinite love. Amen
