This week I am cleaning out my desk at work to begin a new chapter on my journey. This morning I found this prayer and liked the wording ...
O God of peace,
sparkle our staleness with your hope,
invade the depth of our being with new courage,
defeat us in your love.
Grant that our lives may be:
surprising in forgiveness and healing,
abounding in joy and laughter,
daring in deeds and dreams of justice.
May we be do-ers, makers, pray-ers of peace
in memory of Christ Jesus. Amen.
