As children, as young people, and as adults
we thank you God for time to rest and play!
Help us to choose activities in our leisure time
that re-create us and diminish no one.
Tune into TV programs with us.
Listen to music with us.
Surf websites with us.
Play sports with us.
Party with us.
Watch movies with us.
Enjoy our hobbies with us.
Read magazines and books with us.
Be a guest in every chat-room we frequent
and a spectator of every game we play.
We invoke your presence as
Immanuel, God-with-us, this week as we play,
in Jesus’ name, Amen.
