A Blessing and Prayer for Grace

How are you today?

Last week I felt a strong sense of the presence of Grace in our lives. There is so much each of us hold: both pain and joy, sorrow and hope, loneliness and togetherness. There is also much beauty in our choice of how to open our hearts, to feel, to experience life. This is where Grace happens: in both the beautiful and difficult.

This prayer/poem is my gift to you. May there be openings in your life where you can feel and experience Grace. Grace is freely given always just because you are you. You are Beloved.

A Prayer for Grace

Grace is falling
falling from the skies;
it comes in thunderous waves of rain
and bright rays of sun
that embrace the land
everyone and everything are
within its reach
and touch.

Grace is rising
rising up from the earth
it comes in the songs of the birds
the beauty of the flowers and trees
inviting you to come closer
to see with your own eyes
to touch with your own skin
to feel within your own body.

Grace is speaking
speaking from the Spirit of Creation
from the tender mouth of God,
that dwells inside
every bud,
every wave,
every beam of light,
every person,
every creature,
every particle of life.

Grace is
LOVE
birthing,
resurrecting,
opening,
healing
You.

Grace is
MERCY
accepting,
embracing,
forgiving,
loving
You.

Grace is yours:
it is your gift
of God’s great Love for you
freely given,
alive,
everywhere,
within you,
and always upon you.

Amen.

Blessings of Grace upon you today and always,
Erin

Prayer during Difficult Times: Prayer during Natural Disasters

Where are you God
in all of this—
all that we feel,
even our Earth is crying—
She burns,
and her seas rage,
and her lands tremble—
even the beauty of her
seems to hurt.

I can’t find you…
—I’ve forgotten how to pray—
It’s just so much.

But then the sun rises
with its halo of burnt embers
And its light shines
through the haze
for Light always finds
its way through
and I am reminded
that you are still here—

and I realize these words
–here on this paper—
is my prayer
And each time someone reads
these words,
this becomes their prayer too—

Our voices rise.

We call out:
Please listen to our hearts,
God—
May you bring peace
to our worried minds;
May you bring healthy air to all
who need to breathe;
May you bring calm
to all those who feel chaos;
May you bestow protection
upon all who fear.
May you quench the fires,
quiet the seas,
bring harmony back to the lands.
May you lift our world
into your hands of LOVE.
We need you God,
we need you here with us.

Amen.

Blessings, Erin

Earth Day Prayer

How are you today?

May the Earth bless you with something wonderful, something that speaks to your soul.

Bless our earth
Thank you [Earth] for all the love
you bestow on us each day.
You awaken our souls to healing
You calm our grieving hearts
and give us a place to put our pain
You fill our hearts with hope
with the dawning of the morning light
You bless us with gentleness
as our ears are filled with songs of birds
In your presence we feel divinely loved
and full of gratitude deep in our hearts.

Earth Day Prayer

Happy Earth Day!

Blessings, Erin
