Summer Prayer

Summer Prayer

God of the Summer,
of sunshine and bright skies,
of warm breezes and cool refreshing night air,
of gardens blooming and flowers delighting,
of slow days and holidays,
of birds chirping and cats sun bathing,
You are here,
You are present.

In words spoken and words heard,
in whispers in the wind,
in silence while sipping a cool drink,
in laughter at barbeques,
in stories told at bonfires,
in snuggles in the tent,
You are here,
You are present.

For those who need rest,
for those who work more this season,
for those who travel,
for those who remain at home,
for those who seek renewal,
for those who appreciate creation,
You are here,
You are present.

God of the Summer,
bless us this season,
awaken us this season,
revive us this season,
for the good of all
and the good of our souls,
You are here,
You are present.
Amen.
