Welcome to [name of church]! Let us pray.
Creator God, you are the Spirit and Breath of the Universe. You are the Center towards whom we journey and the Way leading to wholeness. We see your world of abundance and blessing all around us. We hear your call to be your eyes, your ears, your hands, to experience this creation and care for it, expressing our wonder in thankfulness and praise.
We come together as a community of faith and compassion. We open our hearts and minds to you. Come, inspire us, dwell with us, and make us one in your Spirit.
