God of Hope
When you speak, life begins.
As you breathe, things become energized.
So speak to our reflections and breathe on our ideas
But also dialogue with us as we doubt.
We know you like to wrestle for you made so many skeptics
and cunning, free thinkers like Jacob.
Show us, as you showed him, that doubts are merely Truth Seeds hitting a growth spurt.
God of Hope be present with our thoughts.
All our thoughts.
They are just seeds soaking up the good from their surroundings.
May all our creative solutions and every concern that crushes us
Find in You nourishment and sunshine and life-giving rain.
Bless us by breathing to life our hopes and our fears.
We become stronger when we are made to hold up our dreams
and hold down our dragons.
