Love welcome us home at the end of each day, wherever we are, whether wandering or seeking shelter, whether traveling and returning to a place we call our own, may our hearts find rest and welcome in your presence. Love welcome us home at the end of each day, and hear our regrets and our gladnesses. Be still with us as a warm presence in our troubles and our grief. Rejoice with us when we have cause for celebration. Attend our thanks for what went well, what is good, what amazes, and for how we awoke again to your transforming power through this day. Love welcome us home at the end of each day and be with us through the night ahead, whatever comes. May we be steadfast in our faithful promises, turning away from dissolution and iniquity and despair, and through your creative spirit find and create with one another a more beautiful, just, and merciful story. Amen.
