Prayers on the struggle and the joy

Blessed are you, gracious God; you make your home among the weak and bring us joy beyond our imagining. Stay with us, we pray, and lead us into even richer experiences of your goodness. Amen.

Loving God, we thank you for the miracle of growth. We give thanks for the mystery of new life from seeds that are buried. May we give ourselves fully to you and in the service of others and so may we rejoice in the gift of life eternal life. Amen

David Adam

Almighty God, you have created the heavens and the earth and made us in your own image: teach us to discern your hand in all your works and your likeness in all your children; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Lord you are our light. You come to all who feel stuck in the wilderness.You come to the fearful, to whom the future is threatening. You come to those who are being overwhelmed, and to encourage wavering hearts. Come to me, today. Amen.

David Adam
