This morning Lord, our prayer is to lean in, to retreat from the pressures we face, and move closer and deeper into your love.
Help us to breathe out, refrain from the distractions we seek, and become open and receiving of your grace.
Our desire is to linger, encircled by the depth of your care, and receive the endless nature of your mercy.
We want to whisper and shout out, to sing out, kneel and pray in this sanctuary, and be honest and real in your presence.
Help us to listen, awaken all our senses to your voice, and become expectant and hopeful of your kingdom work in our lives.
