My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:2

The peace of Christ renews my soul;
it fills my life and makes me whole,
restores the world to harmony.
The peace of Christ will set me free.

The Spirit breathes and conquers fear;
it brings to life God’s kingdom here
and peace will reign, contention cease.
The power of Love brings perfect peace!

Let me break down the walls of hate
and help your kingdom to create.
God, send me forth and let me be
an echo of divinity.

— “My Savior Said That I Should Be,” Community of Christ Sings 589, stanzas 3–5

Prayer Phrase

“He has made everything beautiful in its time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Spiritual Practice

All That Lives

Take a walk and find a tree where you can sit (or imagine walking and sitting beneath a tree). Lean against the tree and feel the texture of the bark. Listen to the wind move through the leaves. Sit quietly and sense God’s presence flowing through the trees and all creation. Offer a prayer of gratitude for your connection to all that lives. Ask for grace to discern and carry out one small act of justice or healing that creates greater wholeness for the plants, animals, trees, waters, air, and land that are part of the community of creation.
