Loving God,

Spring is a metaphor for change.

Some changes we eagerly await, and some we abhor.

Some changes we plan and others arrive uninvited.


To all these changes we ask the gift of your perspective

beckoning us to expectation, hope, and rebirth.

May the sunlight and the rain be reminders that you are at work renewing the earth.

As a God of renewal, you are ever at work in our lives, too.


Open our eyes and lives to the needed changes in our lives this Spring.

Awaken us to new life and perspective, for we pray in your Holy Name.



– Rev. Mark Bekkedahl
