Lighting the candle this morning, I sit quietly before it.
This is time set aside for God and me to be together.
God is never too busy to listen.
My heart is open.
I come empty,
I come in hope,
I come in need to be made anew.
Come Lord, your presence is creative, life-giving.
Cleanse and refresh me.
Encourage and strengthen me for the day ahead.
Thank you for our time together. Amen.
