Incredible Journey of Faith & Life

Sheri Curry prays for students in the PTS Doctor of Ministry program, as well as all students of faith and life.



Opening Prayer

Gracious God,

            You call us to this place from east and west

            From north and south

We long to respond to your call:




Come to us, we pray.

Touch us.

Empower us as your people,

That we might worship you.



Prayer of People and Illumination

For the gift of life this day, we thank you God.

For songs and prayers,

            and stories to share,

            For late night conversations

            good food and laughter,

            And friends old and new

For each word of affirmation

            and each nudging utterance to pay attention 

We are grateful for such privileges.


Compassionate God, hallow these students

            Whose life’s work is learning to love as you love.

Give them courage to set healthy boundaries for themselves

            As they do the good work of being advocates

                        for your creation

                                    Your earth

                                    Your oceans

                        And for human rights for all peoples

                        who on earth do dwell. 


And for each student absent this day –

            Rush to them the strands of love

                        that flow through this space

            Bind them with our care

            Be their refuge and strength.


God of Whirlwind and Fire,

            Thank you for this incredible journey of faith and life.

            For your gift of the mind

            And tenderness of heart.




And now,

In these precious moments together,

            Grant us grace to hear your promises

            And the humility to yield to Your Living Word

Spoken through prophets and apostles.  Amen.
