God, you move among us with grace,
with the lift and the sweep
of the wind of the Spirit.
But we often refuse to move with you.
We stiffen our backs
and tighten our souls
and lower our eyes
and mumble that we cannot dance.

Send us the truth that will set us free,
free to bend with your Spirit,
free to follow your beat,
free to give ourselves entirely to you,
free to love and to live
with the grace
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
