God Of New Creating …

God of new creating,
who beckons us
to the dance of birthing
and sustains us
in our laboring,
hear this prayer:

From fear of the unknown
deliver me.
From doubts of my creativity
deliver me.
From ridicule by those around me
deliver me.
From my excuses about my abilities,
my age, my education,
my looks, my status
deliver me.

With your promise of companionship
comfort me.
With your creative spirit
bless me.
With your pledge of sustenance
strengthen me.
With your embrace of all of me
heal me and set me to motion.

You who called me to life
that you may be born again in me,
blessed be in this and all seasons!
– Jan L. Richardson from Sacred Journeys: A Woman’s Book of Daily Prayer
