Acts 2:1-2
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.

One Day

Sometimes I lay under the moon
And thank God I'm breathin'
Then I pray, "Don't take me soon
'Cause I am here for a reason."

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around because

All my life I've been waitin' for
I've been prayin' for
For the people to say
That we don't wanna fight no more
There'll be no more war
And our children will play

One day, one day, one day, oh
One day, one day, one day, oh

It's not about win or lose, 'cause we all lose
When they feed on the souls of the innocent
Blood-drenched pavement
Keep on movin' though the waters stay ragin'

In this maze
You can lose your way, your way
It might drive you crazy but
Don't let it faze you, no way, no way!

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around because

All my life I've been waitin
I've been prayin' for
For the people to say
That we don't wanna fight no more
There'll be no more war
And our children will play

One day, one day, one day, oh
One day, one day, one day, oh

One day this all will change, treat people the same
Stop with the violence, down with the hate
One day we'll all be free, and proud to be
Under the same sun, singin' songs of freedom like

Why-ohh! (One day, one day) why-oh, oh, oh!
Why-ohh! (One day, one day) why-oh, oh, oh!

All my life I've been waitin' for
I've been prayin' for
For the people to say
That we don't wanna fight no more
There'll be no more war
And our children will play

One day, one day, one day, oh
One day, one day, one day, oh
Prayer inspired by Psalm 16

Around the world we are finding creative and safe ways to gather,
together we crave something Holy, something Sacred, something Good – You.
As we listen out for one another, we cannot help but smile,
it is so good to be together.
We acknowledge that we are the lucky ones,
we are part of a loving community.
Yet, we still come to You, wondering what tomorrow will bring,
longing to trust you fully, believing in a brighter future.

Many of us are having dreams,
some of us can’t sleep for dreaming,
others slip into daydreams and struggle to focus,
we imagine what the world could be like when we fully emerge.
Could it be a world in which everyone is loved, feels safe, is healthy and where peace rules?
Loving God, reach into our dreaming and teach us how to make these dreams a reality.

On our good days, we can feel Your presence,
it’s wonderful!
Sometimes we dance around the lounge and sing out loud!
On our bad days, we can feel Your presence,
sometimes we cry, but we know You get it,
all our feelings are completely safe with You.
You see it all and yet You stick with us.
We are on this journey together.
Because of You, we are not alone.

So Be It.
