Thank you for being with us wherever we are.
Help us to cultivate our awareness of your presence through prayer and through paying attention.
Protect us from thinking that our life with you begins when we die. Help us instead to remember that our life with you has already begun because you have chosen to be with us.
Remind us that while there may well be other places we will go, we can and should serve you right where we are. Let us remember that our place of service is wherever we are.
Wherever heaven is, O God, we look forward to being with you there.
Wherever we are, O God, we praise you for being there with us.
