There is a power in the universe that expresses itself as life. This energy of life is found everywhere; in plants, animals and all living beings. Its character is loving, powerful, joyful, and giving.
Just as this life energy animates my life, so it lives the lives of those around me. Each one is life in expression, unique, free to make choices.
This prayer speaks to families needing new ways of relating. In this tender time, remembering that the divine spirit lives and flows through all life, I declare that this spiritual wisdom is available to each one of us, and we have the choice to use it compassionately.
Families are surrounded by this loving presence that supplies infinite ideas for creative new family relationships. Each of us brings our ways of seeing joy in the world to the table. We learn from each other. Trust grows
This loving spirit intends only well for us and we get to receive that goodness with our families. As each one nourishes themselves in this grace of spirit, each becomes more resilient and able to connect again with others. At God’s speed this transformation takes place, families regain balance.
And with gratitude for the way this spirit works, I release this prayer to the activity of those spiritual laws that are already making this so.
And so it is. Amen.
