“Exodus 3:1-12 (Contemporary English Version)” by Mark Beingessner

Exodus 3:1-12

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred paddocks seeking you. Even as we approach your Beautiful Gate, we hear your voice calling our names. You have heard our cries of fear and pain. You have heard Mother Earth groaning under the strain of our wayward actions. You remind us that this ground–and all ground–is your holy space. We want to remove all metal and medals in your presence–everything that keeps us from seeing and feeling you face-to-face.

We walk on your earth and in your creation and take it all for granted. In this moment, in the stillness, we hear you remind us of the holiness, sacredness, precision of our planet earth and your creation. We pause and honour where we are and our relationship with you. Thank you for being the God of our Ancestors, of us, and the future generations. You see, hear, and know what we are experiencing. Thank you for being with us and creating a way for freedom and peace. We follow and obey you.

I remove my sandals before you today, O Creator, and thank you for…

Give us your wisdom and compassion to care for all creation. As you care for us in these sacred paddocks, we will learn and follow your example to do better, celebrate you, and praise you like we should.

With joy we praise you!
