Prayer: Intercessions during Autumn

God of the seasons, there is a time for everything; a time for dying and a time for rising.
 
          We need courage to enter into the transformation process.


God of autumn, the trees are saying goodbye to their green, letting go of what has been.
   
          We, too, have our moments of surrender, with all their insecurity and risk. Help us to let go when it is time.

God of fallen leaves lying in colored patterns on the ground, our lives have their own patterns.

           As we see the patterns of our own growth, may be learn from them.

God of misty days and harvest moon nights, there is always the dimension of mystery and wonder in our lives.

          We always need to recognize your power-filled presence. May we gain strength from this.

God of geese going south for another season, your wisdom enables us to know what needs to be left behind and what needs to be carried into the future.

          We yearn for insight and vision.

God of life, you believe in us, you enrich us, you entrust us with the freedom to choose life. For this, we are grateful.
