In our weakness, O Lord, be to us a never-failing strength; in our sinfulness, pardoning love; in our need, all-sufficient grace; and in our anxiety, both stillness and rest. Amen.Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879)
God of new creation,
on the journey from caterpillar to butterfly
keep us faithful in that soupy stage
when structures fall apart.
When we have lost sight of who we were
and cannot yet grasp who we are to become
give us the courage to keep going.
Strengthen our confidence
that the new thing you desire to do in us and through us
will be full of your glory. Amen.
