Take a few moments before beginning to center yourself.
Holy One, we hear in your word that you are a God of the living – a God of life and not of death. As you bring life to us through our baptism into Christ’s death and resurrection, through your word, through creation and other people, and through Holy Communion, may we bring life to others by graciously sharing your story and the blessings you have given us. In Jesus’ precious name we pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, paying attention to what jumps out at you.
