for 1 Kings 19:1–15a
When we are afraid, O God,
comfort us with your presence.
When we have lost our way, O God,
give us a new direction.
When life feels too hard to face, O God,
be our shelter, our hiding place.
When we must live again, O God,
resurrect our broken spirits
with a great wind, to clear the air,
an earthquake to move our feet,
a fire to spark our zeal,
and with silence, stillness, peace
in your abiding presence.
