Easter 6B opening 10 May 2015 evening

This prayer included long pauses between each sentence, to allow the congregation to reflect, in their own ways, on the themes and images they brought to mind. When I used this, I told the congregation not to worry if they felt they were wandering off topic, but to allow themselves to be guided by the Holy Spirit.

Creator God

all heaven and earth, all we know and all we have yet to discover were made in your love

Heavenly Christ

word of the father, nothing was made without you being part of it

Holy Spirit

brooding over the waters, bringing order in chaos, stirring up where there is calm

Blessed trinity

move within and around us as we are gathered together

bright radiant light

shine into the places within us which need illumination

cleanse our thoughts and minds

draw us closer into your love

of you

of one another

of your world
