I thought I’d share the prayer that we say to close our meditation group, each time we meet. I kind of feel that the words can even work in the context of our Blogsphere.
Father Lawrence Freeman Closing Prayer:
“May this group be a true spiritual home for the seeker, a friend for the lonely, a guide for the confused. May those who pray (or blog ) here be strengthened by the Holy Spirit to serve all who come, and to receive them as Christ Himself. In the silence of this room may all the suffering, violence, and confusion of the world encounter the Power that will console, renew and uplift the human spirit. May this silence be a power to open the hearts of men and women to the vision of God, and so to each other, in love and peace, justice and human dignity. May the beauty of the divine life, fill this group and the hearts of all who pray (blog) here, with joyful hope. May all who come here weighed down by the problems of humanity leave giving thanks for the wonder of human life. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. AMEN.”
I’d love to hear your thoughts on prayer and on whether you see this blogshere we are all part of as a community and whether you feel we can serve each other and make the world a better place, one act of thoughtful communication, at a time. Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read and enjoy the photos below. Live well. Leanne
