loveHeavenly Father,
You come to us as a child,
You come to us as the wind,
You come to us unbidden,
You come to us in our time of need.

In your son Jesus Christ
We witness your love for us.
Through his teaching and healing ministry
We observe how you would have us live.

In your Holy Spirit
We are challenged in our living.
Called to reject the transient desires of this world.
Empowered to demonstrate your love for all creation.

Encourage us to build bonds of friendship;
Remove the shackles of fear from our lives.
Strengthen our resolve to live lives committed to love.

In Jesus name. Amen.
