God of the Upside-Down

Oh God of the Upside-Down,

You turn chaos

into the order and the beauty of creation,

The simplicity of water

into the fragrance and the fellowship of wine,

The desolation of mourning and ashes

into the anointing of oil and gladness.

Come into our lives with Your transforming power.

Shake us.

Move us.

Stir things up a bit

that they may settle down again into new patterns of life and light.

Oh God of the Upside-Down set our hearts,

our thoughts,

our lives aright.

Amen.
