An Aging Prayer

Bless me as I move forward through time,
accepting my mind, when it moves at a waltz,
seeing my beauty, is no longer that of youth,
aware of my body, which is changing,
grateful for the wisdom gained.

Bless me with strength, health and vitality,
open me to new lessons and opportunities,
reflecting on the moments of my life,
knowing aging isn't for jelly beans,
celebrating my own longevity.

Bless me as I move forward through time,
remembering, sorting, valuing, celebrating, regretting,
loving, giving, missing, grieving, honoring, journaling,
working, relaxing, dancing, resting, moving, longing,
praising, meditating, singing, reading, writing, walking,
fighting, healing, bitching, accepting, thinking, flowing.

Bless each day of my life, as I become an elder.

the right to watch our children grow, strong and free,
the right to prosper, the right to dream and achieve
May we always remember, All humans are born equal.

Moving Through the World

Bless Our Universal Humanity

We, the Human Family, are one family,
long ago, we shared the same mother and father,
walked the same hills, drank from the same rivers,
once, we were close, once we faced life together,
adveresity strengthened us, migration shaped us,
we moved apart, forgetting we were brothers & sisters,
divided by distance, our cultures grew, differently.
United by our shared genes, our needs were similar,
our solutions, our customs became different & diverse,
our human family flourished, grew and prospered,
time passed, society evolved and prejudice set in.

Bless Our Universal Humanity,
as the modern world brings us all together, again,
may we remember our commonality, our blood kinship,
we DO have the power to celebrate our differences,
we do not need to war over them,  or poison the Earth,
our commonality can strengthen us now, if we let it.

Bless Our Universal Humanity,
at this time of coming together, a time of evolution,
again, we are becoming aware of our shared fate,
we all influence the Earth, and are influenced by it,
the forces around us demand our coming together,
we must focus on our shared fate, to give us strength.

Bless Our Universal Humanity,
so that our children can grow and interact in peace,
live, prosper and grow strong, as did our ancestors,
we share a smaller world now, and we need each other,
so that we can live in security and peace, most of the time.
We must bless each other, as we bless ourselves.

Invocatioon of Forgiveness

Today, I call on the powers of forgiveness,
the hope that heals & wipes away resentment,
I am ready to forgive & heal old wounds.
I forgive you for the past, making way for friendship &
to forgive all who have hurt me in the past, deliberately
or by accident. I am ready to forgive myself for errors
made & things I have done in the past that I regret.

Healing replaces resentment, peace replaces anger
as forgiveness grows inside me, my heart lightens.
filling me with a sense of wellbeing & acceptance,
I embrace forgiveness, the great healer of hearts.

Prayer for Understanding

May I come to Understand,
that blessings are everywhere,
that my attitude will effect outcomes,
that challenges are often gifts in disguise.

May I come to Trust
that most things can get better, with time,
that my instincts & gut feelings have value,
that a positive attitude makes things go smoother.

May I come to See
that I have many skills & talents I can use,
that I am a positive influence on many people,
that there are those around me who wish me well.

May I come to Value
that today is a blessing to be enjoyed,
that each person is unique & important,
that each moment of my life has meaning.

Abby

Healing Blessing

Bless this day with healing, bless it with
radiant sun energy, fill each cell of the body,
bringing a flood of healthy energy to all the body,
banishing illness & disease, as healing grows.

May the abundant powers of health flourish within,
each day, may they expand & grow stronger,
bringing the gifts of vitality, strength & wellbeing,
Blessings flow now with ample energy & happiness.

Abby

Moderation Prayer

Bless me with the gift of moderation,
able to see clearly, when enough is enough,
willing to take only what I need, use only what I must,
live on the Earth, in awareness of my actions' impact.
Bless me with a moderate spirit that does not waste.
Bless me with easy acceptance of this way of being.

Blessings on a BreakUp

Let us part in peace, without animosity,
respecting the times we shared, and the need to part,
grateful for the pleasure we gave each other once,
the lessons learned, good times and adventures shared.
Blaming is a trap that solves nothing and hurts us both,
binding us together in angry, toxic, dysfunction.

The simple facts are these . . .
It's over, we are parting and our time together is done.
May we bless each other in parting, as we move on
to our new, seperate, journeys through life.

Bless my neighbors, both near and far away,
keep them safe as they live each day,
in mind and body, may they be well and at peace,
keep them, and their children healthy and whole,
be there meaningful work for them to do each day,
with rest and replenishment when the day is done.
Bless my neighbors, both near and far away.
Bless them and their families everyday.

                              Prayer for Understanding Others

Make me willing and able to understand
the many complex differences in people,
differences forged in the fires of our experiences,
beliefs born of culture, faith, education and circumstance.

Make me willing and able to understand
that our hearts hunger for similar things,
that our hopes and fears mirror our life experiences,
possibilities sought after, with our strength and resolve.

Make me willing and able to understand that
each of us have dreams, hopes and aspirations,
to know we each value our families, friends and our lives,
we are more alike, than we are different from each other.

Make me willing and able to understand that
hopes for our children, our dreams, vision, home,
friends, family, work, honor, laughter, and song unite us,
knowing it is only our fears and prejudices that separate us.

May my understanding grow today and be a blessing,
making me closer to everyone I meet, everyone I see.
I value differences forged in the fires of our experience.
Dancing my dance of life, I am growing in understanding,
as I honor and celebratethe diverse life dances of others.

                                      Invocation of Balance

Balance brings comfort, power and sanity,
in all things there is a kind of sacred balance,
a place between tipping points, a place of equality,
balance is the state of all possibilities, all truths.

May I find balance in my life and in all things,
finding the wisdom to balance my beliefs,
the discipline to balance my physical being,
the courage to balance my actions with thought,
the curiosity to balance my opinions with facts,
the judgment to balance my work with rest.

Bless all I see and all I do, with balance,
making of me, and impartial and just person,
fair of heart and expansive of spirit.
Bless me this day with sacred balance.

The Blessing of Food

Set before me, is the blessing of a full belly.
The dream of all Earth's creatures, since time began.
May my mind be sharpened, my heart grateful, my body nourished,
and my spirit replenished, by the abundance before me.
I am greatly blessed this day, may I appreciate how fortunate I am.

Affirmation of Otherness

We love who we love, and that is good,
we all see ourselves in the mirror, differently,
we see our inner nature that is invisible to others,
we come in many hues of the spectrum, many paths,
in our lives, we each of us, walk on multiple paths.
Straight, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirited, Asexual,
Black, Hispanic, Asian, Semitic, White, Indigenous, Disabled,
Catholic, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Bahai,
Pagan, Mormon,Taoist, Humanist, Atheist, Agnostic, Quaker,
simple words we use to describe aspects of ourselves,
just illusions of "otherness" that often seperstes us.
As people, our triue differences are in our ethics<
our compassion for others, our fairness, our loyalty
in our dealings with each other, as we live our lives.
May we come to respect each person we meet,
judging not by their self identity, but by their character.

Bless the Children

Bless the Children of Earth
may they have the blessings of food and health
may their homes be peaceful, their world safe
may we adults, work to make these blessings real
by our actions, attention, and giving, we make it so.

Bless the Children of the earth
with the abundance of a happy, secure life
may they have a life with education and opportunity
each child deserves no less, each child is precious
they are the future, the living legacy of our ancestors.
Bless the Children of the Earth.

Blessing for Our Home

May our home be blessed with laughter and peace
May health and vitality inhabit all who dwell here
May our table be blessed with food and conversation
May there be peaceful evenings and restful sleep
May we know our home is not a roof, or a place,
Our home is family, friendship and faith in the future,
Bless our home this day, everyday, forever.

Abby

May Kindness Grow

May kindness grow within me,
bringing deeper awareness of life's facets,
touching all who I meet, with a good feeling,
brightening the day of others, in my wake.

May each action I take, be rooted in kindness,
in everything, there is a kind and unkind way
to move forward, to resolve a situation, to be.
May the depth of my kindness increase, daily.

Abby

Prayer for Self Acceptance

I am fallible, and only human, sometimes I fail,
my best efforts are not always enough
my best intentions and judgment can be wrong
my sincerest beliefs can be flawed
I am fallible and only human.
May I have the courage to accept my limitations
May I have the flexibility and insight to change my mind
May I have the openness to see the truths, in beliefs, that are not my own
I am only human, but I seek to grow in wisdom and understanding
May each new day bring me deeper awareness of others and myself.

Prayer for Compassion

Open my heart, expand my spirit, clear my mind,
make a wide place for compassion, within me,
that it may may grow and flourish, as I nurture it,
seeing that each of us walks life's path as best we can,
balancing my desires with my needs and others' needs.

Compassion shown, is a bright gift to all around me,
blessing everyone, but especially blessing myself,
it lifts me above mean spiritedness and petty spite,
expands my understanding of others' challenges,
drawing me ever closer to my own divine nature,
comforting those in need, with shared humanity.

Bless my dealings with others each day,
bring my most compassionate self forward, at all times,
flowing freely into the world, which is in need of it,
may compassion grow within me, today and always,
Blessing each day with my humanity.

Invocation of the Greater Good

We are all connected in this life,
when my neighbors do well, it benefits me,
when my neighbor suffers, it diminishes me.
the invisible threads that connect us are strong.
Bless us all with what we need to sustain us.

All things that happen send out ripples,
tiny waves of energy that change everything.
Forces for good or ill are constantly swirling,
moving us toward greater good or greater loss,
all of us are touched by the ripples.

May I be a positive force for the greater good,
sending out beneficial ripples, ripple after ripple,
help me to move the world in a better direction,
a fairer, kinder, more just, healing direction.
May my life's actions build beacons of hope.

We are all connected in this life,
in our thoughts, our actions, our beliefs,
there are always consequences for good or ill.
May I cause ripples of goodness in the World.
Bless the threads that bind us all together.
