Miriam of Nazareth pray for us

Mary, even as a child you were aware of God and open to God’s presence.  Help us to open ourselves to the presence of God within us, and Art_MARY_The_Annunciation_Tanner allow God to transform us into the love that can transform the world.

Deliver us, Lord, from the way of sin and death.
Open our hearts to your grace and truth.
Fill us with your holy and life-giving Spirit. ...
Teach us to love others in the power of the Spirit.
Send us into the world in witness to your love.
Bring us to the fullness of your peace and glory. 

(adapted from the Book of Common Prayer 305-6)
