A Collect for Campfires

O God, consuming fire, who spoke to Moses first from fire and guided him through the darkness by fire; you took your servant Elijah in fire and sent your Spirit as fire upon the heads of the Apostles. As tonight's fire dwindles to glowing coals in the night air thick with your presence, kindle in me a fire that never dies and grant that its smoke wisps upward with my prayers filling your nostrils with the fragrance of your Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
