Spirit of God
You are the breath of creation
The wind of change
Speak through our thoughts and dreams tonight
Song “Little things”
Forgive us our closed minds
And break down the barricades of our hearts
So we can embrace new ways of being
We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language
Reading Acts 21
12 When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem. 13 Then Paul answered, “Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” 14 When he would not be dissuaded, we gave upand said, “The Lord’s will be done.”
We pray tonight for all those we know who need our help and prayers who we carry in our hearts tonight.
Spirit of the Living God present with us now enter their bodies, minds and spirits and heal them of all that harms them. Let your angels be beside them at this time and protect them. In Jesus Name we pray.
In the depth of silence
No words are needed
We are just called to listen
To the movement of the Spirit
And in the midst of confusion
To hear your voice.
