Prayers

Blessing Prayer: To Our Daughters …

May your life always be counterpoint to the clamour of the world.
May you delight in dancing lightly with life.
May you soar on eagles wings.. high above the madness of the world.
May you always sing melody in the symphony of your life
May you taste.. smell and touch your dreams of a beautiful tomorrow.
May your sun always shine … and your sky be forever blue.
Jonathan Lockwook Huie 

Dance Lightly With Life:
Today is your day to
dance lightly with life,
sing wild songs of adventure,
soar your spirit,
unfurl your joy.
— Jonathan Lockwood Huie from 100 Secrets for Living a Life You Love

 

The Book of Eve

Blessed are you, O God,
who created the world with a word
and who fashioned your people
from dust and from delight.
In our waking, may we know you
breathing in us,
breathing through us,
creating us anew
with your longing and love.

Blessed are you, O God,
who dwells even in darkness
and who restores your creation
with the gift of rest.
Deliver your people
from the troubles of the night,
and let your peacefulness and grace
be upon each place.
— Jan Richardson from In the Sanctuary of Women:A Companion for Reflection & Prayer
