Psalm 19: 1-2 (Common English Bible)
1Heaven is declaring God’s glory; the sky is proclaiming our Creator’s handiwork.
2 One day gushes the news to the next, and one night informs another what needs to be known.
Oh, gracious and loving God. You are God of earth, moon, and sky. God of sea, land and air.
Creator you balance the earth on your fingertip, and you hold each of our lives in your loving bosom. Help us to hold each other in love and care. Help each one to experience your justice by acting justly and graciously. Help each one to work for the causes of equity, peace and justice in our minds, bodies, souls and spirits.
Teach us, oh divine One, the meaning of inner disturbance and inner peace. Teach us how to pay attention to, and resound in ways that make lasting change inside and out. Let us each, like the heavens, declare the glory of our God in ways that are special, and heartfelt. Spark in each of your children a movement towards love and hope.
In your many names we pray,
Amen, Ashe, and so it is.
