Prayer of the Week

Compassionate Creator,
Awaken me to your Holy Presence,
to the divinity of all creation,
that I might honor the sacredness of all life.
May all resentment and bitterness within me
be transformed by your Love.

Guide me into wholeness, harmony and balance,
that I may be a peaceful presence.
Let me give witness to your Way of Love,
that others may grow in trust and truth.

Great Awakener, open my heart,
that I may always give thanks and praise
for my life just as it is,
and journey onward with clarity,
courage and commitment.

May I be always open to change
and to your guiding Spirit.
May I risk the unknown
and live into the Mystery.

– Excerpted from Psalm 109
as translated by Nan C. Merrill
in Psalms for Praying: An Invitation to Wholeness
(with additional words by Michael Bayly)
