PRAYER FOR THOSE ON HOLIDAY
Lord, we pray for all those on holiday this summer and thank you for the refreshment,
which holiday, brings to our lives;
for the excitement of anticipation and planning;
for the freedom from routine, and for new experiences and opportunities.
You have given us a world with so much variety that wherever we go we are surrounded by things,
which are different and bring new experiences.
Help us to use our holidays to see your creation.
Help us to use our freedom to understand more clearly the fullness of life you are constantly offering us.
Accept our thanks for the rich variety of life, which is your gift,
and when our holidays are over, help us to return to our homes safely,
with a new vision of your will for us.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen
