Chaotic, Creative God-
The winds of change hover over your creation, nudging us towards a new heaven here on earth.
As the dry winds from the south pick up, causing us to remain inside our comfort zones, your Spirit is throwing open doors and windows, begging us to move back into the world.
In a vulnerable state, we slowly emerge into ferocious terrain- an atmosphere which wants to remain at rest and at unrest.
But here you are, God, asking us to take chances, asking us to speak boldly, love courageously, and care fiercely.
Today, we ask for prayers of strength to advocate for our neighbors on the margins. We pray for bravery as we allow mercy to emerge from our traumatized, closed-up souls.
We are willing to heed your call and take chances that build a more-caring world and share love which unites us and magnifies your image in one another.
