Fire from above,
fire that burns the chaff away,
fire that refines the rough ore into shining metal,
fire that transforms darkness into light,
Power of the living God,
falling from heaven to consume the sinful city,
falling from heaven to totally consume Elijah's offering,
falling like tongues of fire and a roaring wind
to kindle in those gathered the fire of your love,
Breath of God transforming the world
touching our lives anew,
each day a new Pentecost
to those who welcome you.

Breathe in us, Holy Spirit,
and let us be transformed
by the power of your touch
by the power of your love
into children of the living God,
willing tools for you to use
as you renew the face of the earth.

Shepherd My Heart 

Shepherd my heart, O Lord this day,
In love's green fields where I might lay
By the still waters of your watchful care.

Shepherd my heart, O Lord - the way
I must go is a valley so gray -
Let the staff of your care be my comfort.

Shepherd my heart, O Lord, I pray,
And when darkness gathers at the end of my day,
May I dwell in your house forever.


Susan E. Stone, 2007
