Prayer: Our Stories

Spirit of Life, God of Many Names and One Transforming and Abundant Love,

Help us to come together this hour as a community of love, of vision, of hope.

Each of us carries with us a story worth knowing,

A lifetime of dreams and disappointments,

Fears, worries, and new beginnings.

Each burden we carry alone, weighs heavier on our spirit.

Teach us to not shoulder our stories alone;

To deepen our connections with our neighbors,

And their connections with ourselves.

May this religious home be a staging ground,

For the pilgrimage that is our life.

Comfort in times of exhaustion and weariness,

A source of challenge when we become complicit to the ills of the world,

And a warm circle to share our lives together.

Knowing that we will make of our home,

What we share with it.
