just breathe

Our God,

The winds blow cooler these days.

In negotiating life together—
in community with each other—
You with us,
we pray for Your Spirit to blow
into our lives
refreshment—
recreation—
renewal.

And we pray in the name of the One
in whose life we still see
Your Spirit moving—
in whose words and deeds and teachings,
we still see Your creative wind
blowing over the surface of what is deep.
We pray
in the name of the One
who breathed You in
and breathed You out—
sustained by You,
manifesting You.
We pray in the name of the One
whose living and loving were indistinguishable
and in whose love we rest our circumstances—
gratefully trusting,

Amen.
