God of all creation, light, and life. Lord in the wilderness you met us. In the lack of physical strength your spirit strengthened us. In places of uncertainty you encouraged us. In the space of fear you were the true author of our faith. We thank you Lord, that you continue to be these things to us, and so much more. We thank you for these wilderness adventurers and the road of spiritual discovery that they are only beginning on. As they have begun their trek to seek the light of faith and community, we pray that you would be their trail guide, and light the path of love and faith for them. We pray that their hearts would be strengthened by your hand and that their spirits would be transformed by the pure presence of your love. As they continue to question, and wonder, and search, we fall upon the promise Jesus gave us “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” We thank you that when the tomb was opened, so was that door. The door into communion, faith, and love. Help us as a church, to stand with these confirmands, as they seek to know you more. May we be open to them and a support to them as you are to us. May you be ever the light of our life, and the joy to our hearts. In Christ our beloved we pray, Amen!
