From Ambrose of Milan (340–397)
You are medicine for me when I am sick.
You are my strength when I need help.
You are life itself when I fear death.
You are the way when I long for heaven.
You are light when all is dark.You are my food when I need nourishment! Amen.
Each Sunday we offer prayers for our church, our community and our world.

Blessing for Your New Year of Life
In the Year of our LORD two thousand and nineteen
Inspired by the Movement of the Holy Spirit
In the little story of Jesus, Simeon and Anna, Luke 2:21-40
May the Holy Spirit, the One who names, call you in honor
May the Holy Spirit, the One who conceives, bear you in glory
May the Holy Spirit, the One who purifies, lift you in holiness
May the Holy Spirit, the One who reveals,
Show you the Child of Salvation
May the Holy Spirit, the One who guides, lead you in hope
May the Holy Spirit, the One who cradles, hold you in arms of love
May the Holy Spirit, the One who praises, sing over you in gladness
And may the Holy Spirit
The One who waits with you
Rest on You in
Now and until you see the face of Jesus
