A Prayer

A prayer from Rev. Victoria Safford

I give thanks for the tender land, my only home,
and for the interconnectedness of billions of lives upon it,
all moving to the music of the sacred cycles
which transcend the measure of our days.
This whole world is a shimmering mystery,
and my unknowing, my ignorance,
is infinite.

So may I be kind, and curious always.
May I deepen in wisdom.
May I be brave in the days ahead, brave beyond all precedent.
May I stay faithful to the covenants I’ve made,
hold fast the holy strands that hold me.
For miracles of transformation and miracles of constancy,
I give thanks.
