|Harvest Moon, September 2023|
|Unidentified garden plant|
|Moonflower and honeybee|
|Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, ventral wings fully open|
Rich in mercy and inexhaustible in grace,
We come before you today with full hearts and empty hands:
Pour your strengthening love into our hearts
And your loving strength into our hands.
Deal gently with our infirmities;
Grant wisdom for our perplexities;
Comfort us in all adversity;
Come alongside us in every difficulty.
Hear and answer our prayers even when we have no words, only tears.
When we are in darkness, let Your light shine brighter.
When we are in pain, let Your love be nearer.
Meet us at the point of our deepest needs today,
For Your glory and our good,
In Jesus' name. Amen.
