God, whose word spoke life and creativity into a formless universe,

and order to a nation of escaped slaves,

whose strong and compassionate voice challenged injustice through frail prophets,

we praise you.


Jesus, whose touch smoothed the broken skin of lepers,

and brought a bleeding woman back to health and belonging,

whose hand raised dead girls, and refused to throw stones at prostitutes,

we praise you.


Spirit, whose breath restores souls and bodies,

and whose presence comforts the grieving,

whose fire ignites compassion within us for the healing of the nations,

we praise you.


God of wholeness,

we celebrate the healing you bring to us and our world,

and we celebrate the promised wholeness

that awaits all of creation

in your eternal reign.
