A Prayer for Lake Junaluska (2022)

Offered by the Rev. Dr. Jae Lee

Loving God, who is ever-present in our alone and painful time,
Answer our prayer for your gentle spirit to come and embrace us with overflowing grace.
Knowing that we are weak, vulnerable, and failing, yet,
Enduring it all to become faithful disciples for your ministry and service.

Jaded by human desires, we have neglected our spiritual needs.
Unravel our self-centered views and help us rediscover your sublime beauty,
Nestled in Lake Junaluska!
As we celebrate the 109th birthday of Lake Junaluska,
Lift us up with your tending spirit so that we may appreciate the rising mountains, still waters,
singing birds, joyful residents, yearning visitors, and hardworking staff,
Use our artful hands to create, preserve, and renew here at Lake Junaluska.
Sustaining God,
Kindle your everlasting flame in our hearts on this special day, so that we may follow your
bright and compassionate love.
Amid our disquieting realities, may Lake Junaluska continue to be a holy place for all people.

We pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Written for the 2022 celebration of Lake Junaluska Day.
