Prayer of the Week

Image: Amy Goalen.

From the corners of creation
to the center where we stand,
let all things be blessed and holy,
all is fashioned by Your hand;
Brother wind and sister water,
mother earth and father sky,
sacred plants and sacred creatures,
sacred people of the land.

In the east, the place of dawning,
there is beauty in the morn,
here the seeker finds new visions
as each sacred day is born;
All who honor life around them,
all who honor life within,
they shall shine with light and glory
when the morning breaks again.
