Sabbath Hope

God of light and love
be near to us this day.
Give Sabbath rest to us all
as we gather in holy places.
Fear is rising like the spring tides
and we struggle to catch our breath.
We need you now as ever.
In the midst of senseless violence
let us know your peace.
In the face of daunting futures
let us reclaim your hope.
In these times of heavy hearts
let us feel your loving presence.
In the uncertainties of our time
let us not forget – you are the author 
and perfecter of our faith.
