Here are some summer prayers -

Summer


Summer God, you dance in on golden sunbeams. 
Like soil that must be plowed or turned over,
So I must prepare to receive your warmth and
The planting of your message in my heart.
Open me to receiving the seed of hope
And the promise of growth.
Plant your spirit deep within me
And make my life fruitful and bountiful. Amen


Come Summer With Me

Come summer with me, Lord;
summer deep down in my soul;
restore my faith in summer’s time,
in rest, in joy, in play, in you...
Summer in my heart, Lord,
and dwell there
as if time would never end,
as if all time were children's time, eternal time
when school is always out and joy is ever in…
And let others summer in my shade, Lord,
and share whatever summer’s peace is mine to give,
whatever summer’s light is mine to shed,
whatever summer's warmth is mine to share...
Good God of every season and every day this week,
come summer with me, Lord, and let the child in my heart
spend this summer in your love...
Amen.

Glory be to God...
for clear blue skies and sunny days
for fresh green grass and leafy trees
for vivid purple flowers and well-tended gardens
for fluffy white clouds and gentle breezes
for bright red buses and busy streets 
Glory be to God...
for people stepping out with sandaled feet
for children playing games with delighted squeals
for picnics and street parties
for street traders and market stalls
for long days and short nights
for open-topped buses and open-necked shirts.
Glory be to God...
for seasons
for summer
for sunshine

A Summer Blessing

May you walk with God
this summer
in whatever you do
wherever you go.
Walking with God means...
walking with honesty
and with courage.
Walking with love
and respect
and concern for the feelings of others.
May you talk to God
this summer
on every day
and in every situation.
Talking with God means...
praying words of praise
for the beauty of creation.
Saying prayers of thanks
for friends and good times.
Asking God's help
in all your decisions.
Expressing sorrow
when you have failed.
May you talk with God
every day. Amen.




Thank you for praying – it makes a difference.
