Let me be willing to see the big picture in all things,
act in accordance with my best, most ethical self,
and grant the benefit of the doubt to all those I meet.

Invocation 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.

A Car Blessing

Bless this car, driver, and all who ride in it,
may the wheels run true and engine purr,
in traveling on the roads, may I be ever alert,
moving safely from my start, to my destination.

Prayer for My Parents

My parents have given this precious life to me,
as I grew up, they did their best to care for me,
my parents sacrificed and saved, working each day,
their lives have been spent meeting my needs,
they are older now, and age brings vulnerability,
if needed, may I be as good and caring to them,
as they were to me, giving and loving, may I be,
willing to share time, memories and thoughts,
may I happily give them love, kindness and care.
Bless my parents, as they blessed me.

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.

Affirmation of Community

Daily, we live side by side, sharing our community,
we take each other for granted, living our lives,
going through our days, seldom thinking of community,
seldom stopping to think of the needs of our neighbors,
caught up, in living and providing for ourselves and family.

Community is just there, and we take it for granted,
until disaster strikes,hardship comes, or weather rages,
then, we suddenly, and desperately, need our community,
we need it to help us survive, keep hope alive, to live.

It is community that provides the essential safety net,
protecting each of us in the face of loss and tragedy, it,
our community that brings out the neighbor in us all.

Today, I will do something to build my own community,
making it stronger for all my neighbors and myself.

A Prayer of Thankfulness

For today, I am grateful
For tomorrow, I am hopeful
For my life, I am blessed
I thank my ancestors for their labors and survival
I thank my contemporaries for their companionship
I thank my descendants for carrying me with them

For today  .  .  .  I do my best in all things
For tomorrow . . .  I honor and heal the environment
For my life . . . I work to be a healthy cell in the body of the Universe
I honor the journey of my life with conscious living
and honor the the lives of all I meet and those I will never know.

Prayer for Her Passing

She was always busy, always working,
her days were long, her spirit strong,
many things always got done, by this one,
if a need was found, there was always the sound
of her bustling, efficient, energy, doing the job.

Her heart was kind, her spirit strong,
each day of her life, found her willing
to dance the dance and walk the walk,
it was a pleasure, when she had the time to talk.

Her favorite things, were the people she knew,
her family, her friends, and me and you,
often she shared a smile and a wink,
she often made you puzzle and think.

Her days were many, but not enough,
saying what she meant, with never a bluff,
acting in kindness, to all she met,
on this heart, may the sun never set.
Her wisdom lives on in those she knew,
Thank You dear woman, I will never forget you.
