We will respect and adore you and your loving teachings, Elders, and Guides. From the rising to the setting of the sun, we will praise you. We will lay down to sleep with the full faith that you will wake us again in the morning or into your eternal embrace.
Jesus answered them, “It is not the healthy people who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to invite good people but sinners to change their hearts and lives.”
(New Century Version (NCV))
Thank you, Loving Yahweh, for loving us just as we are, even when we sin. We know what is right and want to do as you want for us, but we do it on our own. It is a battle of the will. We fail when we do it on our own. The more we try to do it on our own, the worse it gets. Thank you, God, that we are delivered through Jesus Christ, our LORD and that the Holy Spirit speaks to us.
We enter your sacred prayer space seeking your guidance. You have placed your commandments before us. We have been burdened with the weight of guilt from the sins of our ancestors and from our own decisions that distance us from you. Draw near to us and tell us once again of your promises to prosper us and not to harm us. We know life goes better if we follow your ways. Give us strength to follow you today.
Creator of Heaven and Earth, wherever we go, there you are. Thank you for your presence, which surrounds us and fills us. We do not need to carry dirt, rocks, or other objects to be able to worship you. We worship you in our daily lives, right where we are, just as we are.
Loving Divine Family,
In the early morning your waning moon of popping trees dances with the morning star. Life-giving Spirit blows across the snow, through the frozen grass and trees. “Remember me. I have existed from the beginning. Remember me, children, parents, grandparents, ancestors, and young generations. Remember to remember.”
