For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.

Your presence among us,
a promise made known.
The reminder and call,
Don’t go it alone.

The grace of a friendship,
the gift of a prayer.
Shared silence in mourning,
our burdens to share.

Your spirit descending,
a peace from above.
Forgiveness and mercy,
understanding and love.

You give us each other,
an image of you,
to gather together,
to make all things new.
