God who cannot be bound,
Flow into our hearts and minds.
Wear down our resistance to your love
And refresh us with the spirit of your compassion.
Today, as we commit ourselves once more to your work,
We ask you to show us how to hold the needs of your world
At the heart of our lives,
And to celebrate your many gifts with joy.
May your power transform our lives,
May your Spirit set us free,
And may the blessing of God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Be with us all now and for ever,
