Holy One Holy God Holy Three

We pray to the God who creates and recreates us in these words by Sheri Curry, spoken on the 6th day of DMin fortnight at PTS.



Opening Prayer

 We praise you, O God, we worship you, we adore you.

You hold the heavens in your hand,

All stars rejoice in your glory.

You come in the sunrise and song of morn,

And bless the splendor of the noonday.

The stars in their courses magnify you,

Day and night tell of your glory,

The song of the wind whispers of your majesty.

You satisfy all things living with your abundance,

And our hearts are full in your presence.

Accept us, your children, Eternal Mother and Father,

And hearken to our prayer

Bend over us, Eternal Love, and bless us.  Amen. 


Prayers of Petition & Illumination

Holy One Holy God Holy Three!


On this 6th day of DMin Fortnight

            6 days now of praying, singing, worshiping

            Reading, writing, thinking,

            Days full of feasting on your word

            And resting in your presence

 We remember your 6th day work

of creating humankind

            in your image –

            Male and female


                        responsible and response – able.



So on this hallowed day of creation,

Hear now our joyful songs 

            for the sheer Miracle of be-ing

                        For the gift of each breath

                        And words that affirm our calling to serve you.


Hallow this space of light and love

            Brimming with accoutrements that shimmer with the faith

                    Of a great cloud of witnesses

                    that believes in the sacred work of this institution

                    and its messengers of good news in the  world.


And where tired bodies or weary minds

Yearn to rest this day,

            Place a song in our hearts and rhythm in our feet

            That we might dance with you

            And give thanks to your forever.


And now,


In these precious moments together,

            Grant us grace to hear your promises anew

            And the humility to yield to Your Living Word

With Psalms – ever new – flowing from our lips.  Amen.
