A Midwest Summer Prayer

Creator God,

Speaking the earth into motion,

You certainly had August days in mind.

Amidst the calm of a summer day,

Remind us of your perfect peace.

Throughout the warmth of a sundrenched afternoon,

Reach our hearts with your everlasting love.

During the delights of long days,

Show us your enduring presence.

At home, during travel, and at work, Lord Jesus,

Fix our hearts on your faithfulness.
