Here Are My Hands

From: A New Liturgy, by Aaron Niequiest.

Aaron writes:

This two-part liturgy is all about recapturing the holy possibility of our commutes.

On the way to work, Part ONE helps us to pray “God, here are my hands. What do You want to do through me today in my job? May my hands, voice, and heart help to bring Your Kingdom here on earth.”

And on the way home from work, Part TWO helps us reflect on the day, confess our sins, forgive those who have wronged us, and let it all go.

Carried by piano, string quartet, and some pounding floor toms, “Here are my Hands” invites us to turn our cars, bikes, or trains into rolling sanctuaries that launch us into God’s good work in our jobs and lives.
