When you are present

When you are present, God of my life, every place is a sacred place, every hour a moment dedicated to your glory, every person a potential saint.

Be present with me, live within me, act and speak through me, reign ever over me.

And not only with me, but with all your people, that you might indeed be one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

We praise you for peace and for the Chosen One who brought us peace. Make us into the peacemakers that you destined us to be. Only by your will is peace restored and spread.

Remind us always that ours is a message of reconciliation, that the Good News is truth designed to forgive and enliven, that only in Christ can we find unity, love, and hope.

Glory is yours, O God, and by our works we seek to glorify your Name.

Say amen. Ask for prayers. Give thanks.
