For gentle patience

. Dearly Beloved,

Grace and Peace to you.


God, today I pray

for gentle patience, as the earth that holds me, whatever I do;

for the hospitable acceptance of what is, as the breeze that blows as it is led and flows around what it must;

for curiosity, as the plants that seek light;

for steadfast strength, as the weeds that return;

for a light heart, as the geese that fly overhead laughing at each other;

for deep compassion, as the sun and the rain that fall upon us, giving us light and life and beauty.

God, today I pray for your eternal Spirit by which you create the world each new day to live in me, to create me anew, to make me beautiful and kind, to make me yours. Amen.

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
