Morning Prayer June 5
Breath of Life let me lay down my fears and burdens here, if only for a little while, and feel peace wash over me. Let my fluttering heart settle, straighten, grow strong as ancient trees and fresh with joy as new flowers. Breath of Life, you know the struggles so many of us face, wrestle, endure. You know us when we lose and when we win and when there is a draw to fight another day. Grant us the courage we need to keep on wrestling, to stay sober and to turn the tides of addiction in our communities, to stay loving and to bring healing in homes and places wrecked by violence, to stay generous and give gracefully and for goodness in each and every day. Make us into true people of peace, who open hearts and doors to transforming love, who dance with life and invite others to that dance. You know us in our struggles and the challenges our hearts and communities are facing. Help us turn back into them in this and every day. Amen.
