Motivate Us

Looking at the rainbow she lamented,
“We could use a new covenant along about now…”

We live in hard times. We seem intent on tearing one another down.
We yearn for God to fix what ails us.

What kind of God would allow the world to be so harsh?
Where is God? Where is hope?

[Moment of silence]

We are called to share what you provide with any who has need.
Given resources, motivate us.

We are called to be in loving relationship with our neighbors.
Given hearts, motivate us. 

We are called to listen to our neighbors’ truth and experiences.
Given ears, motivate us.

We are blessed with One to show us the way to live into God’s dream.
Given eyes, motivate us.

Open our hearts, our ears, our eyes in worship this morning.
We open our authentic selves,
choosing to honor our holy covenant with God. Amen.
