You who spoke the heavens into being and laid the foundations of the earth,
will You be present in the laying of our foundations?
You who created time, yet remain both inside and outside of time,
will You help us steward and manage ours?
You who sang over creation,
will You sing over us and orchestrate the details of our work?
You who began this good work in us, You who are the sustainer of all things, Beginning and the End,
we ask that You bless these your loved ones and their families, communities (and ministries, their cohort, and their advisor)… in the path they are walking each day and bring them to a successful end.
