Be blessed and refreshed this August, whether you at at home or away.

O Maker of all the world where I can roam,

you give me the life I have made and know my need to rest.

Come to me with your peace, at home or away, as I set out this day.

Come to my mind, take the stress and strain of my daily habit.

Come to my sleep and restore me from weariness.

Come to my eyes as you show me new sights and points of view,

or those I have loved and return to again.

Come to my tongue as I savour tastes strange to me.

Come to my hands as I try things I have not tried before.

Come to my homesickness and assure me of the true home within.

Come to the freedom I feel when I am away,

that has tried to break through my working days,

and might be longing to whisper something important.

Come to my vision and show me what I need to see this August day.

The blessing of God when I am far from home.

The blessing of God when I am near.

The blessing of God on my venturing and exploring.

The blessing of God on my homecoming and belonging.

The blessing of God on my going out and coming in this day and always. Amen
