Isaiah 40

God of all life, God of my life,
Whisper a word that I am longing to hear:
of solace,
of hope,
of love,
of a new day.
Fill me up where I feel poured out.
Do not let your servant falter;
give me your strength to run.

God of grace and strength,
Grant us all legs and hands and voices
to care,
to build,
to heal,
to do the daily work.
Save us from our idols of self-sufficiency.
Encourage us to risk a new vision
of living fully for one another, fully for you.
