These prayers and blessings were written for the morning prayer time at Bethany Theological Seminary.
God of the wide waiting spaces
Of bounded sanctuaries
Of glistening candle flame
Urge us to wait, sit, flicker to the movement of your coming.
O Ever Leading Wonder,
Place an agreeable spirit within us
As we give thanks for the unknown
Yet to come. Amen.
O Light of Life and Fire Divine,
Move us forward
From here to there
With understanding, wisdom, and confidence.
O Sacred Illumination
Set my heart aflame this day
To see as you see
To love as you love
To walk where you would have me go. Amen.
