A summer prayer
As we rejoice in summer recreation,
bless, loving God, those whose lives feel destroyed.
As we find a stillness for rest and refreshment,
bless, loving God, those whose lives are defined by relentless care.
As we delight in new places visited on holiday,
bless, loving God, those imprisoned by poverty of wealth or ambition.
As we find adventure in activities both fun and frightful,
bless, loving God, those for whom illness and incapacity have become barriers.
As we find refreshment from routines and daily rituals,
bless, loving God, those whose lives can never find free space or time.
