May 1 Prayer
Saturday Slow down
We enter the first of a new month
with a pause long enough to begin again.
Take a look at your hands
Your hands are made to create,
to work and to play.
Hands to shape the days to come
Hands to offer up a praise,
a prayer of release into grace that holds your hands
to comfort and be a comfort,
To love and be loved
is kind and hopeful.
On this Saturday
slow down enough to see your hands as they are.
Bless them and rest them.
Give thanks for them.
Let them become as flowers to the sun
holding radiant light beams of glorious color
reflecting this God we serve with the
hands he has made.
