Prayer for the Congregational Gathering
Be still, be silent before our God.
Reflect on the logo.
Remember the call you heard to the Presentation Way of Life.
Remember who Nano is for you.
God of love and compassion.
As we step out in faith and hope
On our journey
Towards the ninth Congregational Gathering
We thank you for the gift of your Spirit
Which set Nano aflame.
We pray that she will continue to stoke our passion
So we, too, will become a vibrant fire
As we continue to live in communion
With all God’s creation,
Especially those made poor.
God of the journeys, be with us.
