Lent 9

I pour out prayers for this day, O Spirit,
like water from a pitcher.

I pray for the breath
to speak words of love and truth.

I pray for the presence
to be mindful and aware of others.

I pray for the wind, filled with signs of spring,
to center me and calm my own spirit.

I ask (carefully) for the refiner's fire
to burn away what is unnecessary.

I ask for the energy, the passion,
to do your work well with all of my gifts.

I look for the comfort of the Advocate
to surround and sustain me.

I pray for the covenanted community
to be your witnesses above all else.

Keep my prayers unceasing
and my heart set on you.
