Sunday Prayer: No. 1

Maybe this will be an ongoing Sunday series; I’m not sure. I only know that in 2020, there is just so much troubling and overwhelming information coming at us. Yet here lies a small thing we can do–however imperfectly–with love. We can offer the sweet fragrance of prayer and faithfully believe it can heal.

Snowy trees in my winter yard in Northern Illinois - Hello Lovely Studio.

Holy Maker, you have created us to thrive and prosper in relationship with each other and with you.

As we join hearts and minds over fiber optics and across the universe, we thank you for your silent presence within it all, guiding our many connections.

We pray for wisdom and discernment, oh Divine Mystery, to become a transformed people who desire peace and who see as you see.

Your grace and trustworthy energy follow us into every corner and consequence, reminding us of the depth of your mercy. Help us to respond with gratitude to keep the the flow flowing and discover perfect love growing.

Bloom in the wilderness of our lives online, Blessed Gardener. And blossom in the gardens of our work and play; may every fruit impart the sweet fragrance of you.

Nurture us, Gentle Father, as we, your children seek: beauty, safety, knowledge, and unity.

Steady our feet when they’re slipping, and recycle every anxiety into assurance as we fix our gaze upon you. Light our desire and burn in our hearts with healing fire, ever refining unholy parts.

We pray all of this humbly with hands wide open to receive the blessing of your sacred forgiveness and eternal compassion.

AMEN.

    Beautiful Michele!
    I loved every word!
    Peace and blessings as you use this platform to remind us what life is all about and the beauty that comes from knowing we are deeply loved by a Divine, Loving God. This is where true beauty starts. It is found first in our hearts and with His help, overflows to heal and transform the world in acts of kindness and love.

      And now I am savoring the honey of your words of love. There are these lovely moments where knowing our belovedness resonates in a remarkable way and other moments we feel locked out of it – so reminding each other to be still and know the truth becomes so very precious. Peace to you, Ann, and thank you so much for reading.
