Opening Prayer: Great Laughing God


Here’s an opening prayer from the United Church of Canada’s Bay of Quinte Conference website.

Opening Prayer for Holy Humor Sunday

O Great Laughing God,
we come into your presence with joy and longing to be surprised.
We thank you that you have given to us the gift of laughter and delight.
These things give hints as to the nature of your purpose for us
and for all the earth.
May we find that in giving up to laughter
there is healing and hope and abundance and blessing.
Tickle our souls with the brush of your Spirit
to renew our worship and our living. Amen.
