    • Gracious God, hear our prayer of return: We carry excess baggage on our journey. Teach us to travel more simply. Our possessions too often own us. Free us to trust you and share with others. Our need for control keeps us anxious and demanding. Teach us to relax. We carry loads of guilt. Encourage us to hand them over to you, trusting in forgiveness. Make us simple – in trust, in life, in commitment to you. Prepare us for mission. Allow us to join your labor to heal the hurting, feed the hungry, and bring good news to the poor. Hear our silent prayers of return …
