Summer Wishes

posted Jun 27, 2020, 9:17 AM by Tracy Mertz

Dear God,

Let us revel in summer. Let us soak up the long days and warm sun. May our feet walk on sandy beaches and our heads rest on thick grass under blue skies. May we listen to and marvel at the singing of the birds and stop to watch blissful children at play. This summer, God, may our breathing slow and our hearts open. God help us to be present to all that is, so that we might best see all that might be.

Prayer for Holy Week

Prayer for Holy Week

God our Father,

This week we remember how your Son Jesus gave us his body and blood before giving up his life so that we might have everlasting life with you.  

Open our hearts, that we might learn to live as his disciples, and follow his example of selfgiving love.  

May these holy days open our hearts to receive all that you long to give us, and to live in the peace of Jesus, your Son.

We make this prayer to you in His holy name.
