CLOSING PRAYER

Loving God, Help me to hear your guidance
To listen deeply to your voice.
Awaken my mind and soul to your work
Within and among us through the Holy Spirit.
Help me not to run into busy avoidance.
Bend my heart to stay . . . and to love.
Help me to see as you see, and so
To walk your gracious ways in this world. Amen.
