Play – Take Time To Be Holy https://youtu.be/PSic8xp7naY
Pray – God, we praise you for all the wonderful things in our lives: for good friends and good health, for good food and clean water, for safe places to live and to work, for the beauty of your creation that inspires artists to create beautiful and thought- provoking works, and for all the gifts you have given us that make the world a wonderful, joyous, engaging place to live.
But God, amidst the joy in life there are still places of sorrow. We pray for those suffering from mental or physical illnesses. May they know your healing. And we pray for their caregivers. May they feel supported by your presence. We pray today for your earth. May we find new sustainable ways to care for the earth and all creation. Amen.
To end this time of worship, play – I’m Gonna Live so God Can Use Me https://youtu.be/q8swneJNml4
