Today's Centering Prayer adapted from Vanderbilt Divinity Library

Holy God, you gather the whole universe

into your radiant presence

and continually reveal your Son as our Savior.

Bring healing to all wounds,

make whole all that is broken,

speak truth to all illusion,

shed light in every darkness,

And shine your radiant holiness into our lives,

that we may offer our hands and hearts to your work:

to heal and shelter,

to feed and clothe,

to break every yoke and silence evil tongues.
