But your loyal love, Lord, extends to the skies;
your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the strongest mountains;
your justice is like the deepest sea.
Lord, you save both humans and animals.
Your faithful love is priceless, God!
Humanity finds refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the bounty of your house;
you let them drink from your river of pure joy.
Within you is the spring of life.
In your light, we see light.
God of the ages, we pause in this holy space asking for your blessing, only to find that the abundance of your love is already around us. Open our eyes to see the blessing of your creation in the beauty all around us. Open our hearts to experience the blessing of faith through the gentle touch of a friend or the supportive smile of a stranger. Open our doors that we may become vessels of your blessing to a world still in need of salvation. All this we pray in the name of Jesus Christ. #ACoBAmen.
