God of Wonder-
With summer comes so many things. A chance to be renewed. Time to be refreshed. And yet we also see our summer days filled to the brim with things to do. Bless our sunny days with an increased awareness of your presence. Guide us so that we might really take the time needed to relax. Help us quiet ourselves so that we might better hear your voice.
We also ask your blessings on those who face difficult challenges in these summer days. Those who have no cool sheltering place to dwell. The many who face the dangers of summer fires and summer storms. We pray for their respite and comfort as well. Guide us to be active signs of your love in their lives.
