Great Light, you see us and know us. You watch over us in the night, and guide our steps in the day. You are the wind in our sails, and the road beneath our feet. You propel us through this life, and we are but leaves borne on the ever-flowing river of your will.
I see great pain in the world. I hear the lonely cries of people without comfort. I hear the famished groans of starving children. I hear the echoing thunder of guns and machines of war. I feel the earth quake below me with anguish for what we have wrought in our greed and pride. Forgive us, all of us, for what we do to this planet, and to each other. Teach our hearts to be mild, our spirits gentle and kind. Keep our minds sharp, and our eyes wakeful. Help us soothe what hurt we can, feed whom we can, fight when we must, and make peace with those who have hurt us.
Be with us all, Light of Love. Be with each who wake in your presence this morning, and seek out those who have woken without you. Guard our ways as we move through these perilous times, and keep our spirits fixed on the unwavering Light of your Love and your hope. Give us the strength of lions, and courage of falcons. May we be swift on your winds, and may we bring your Light those who need it most.
In the name of our Light and Love– Amen and Namaste.
