An Ordinary Extraordinary
O God, thank you for meeting us in ordinary places, doing ordinary things and at ordinary times. Your divine presence in the ordinary transforms the moment into an extraordinary theophany.
Empower us to be extraordinary in this uncertain season. Fill our lives with wonder as we witness extraordinary mercies instead of judgement and extraordinary miracles instead of the usual mess.
Tune our hearts to perceive your presence when we cannot hear your voice. Give us joyful words to proclaim the good news so that it may be heard above the cacophony of the world's fears. In Jesus' name, may the Holy Spirit energize us to proclaim hope and then be that hope in a darkened world. Amen.
