Genesis 41:14-36

Loving Divine Family,

You have placed your gifts and values within each of us. We enter your sacred prayer space seeking your wisdom. We are praised among the people for our good deeds and gifts. We are acknowledged for our abilities. People say we are gifted and talented, but we know all our gifts and abilities are from you. Others praise us for our deeds, but all good things are only because your hand is upon us. You encourage us in this space to accept the kindness of others and to acknowledge you as our source.

Dream Maker and Keeper, we come to listen to you. Thank you for the gift of dreams, even for the ones that feel like nightmares, and for speaking to us through them. We thank you for the wise, skilled persons who help us hear your loving message from our dreams. You know better than us and you know the way. Thank you for discerning guides who prepare us for what is around the corner.

I acknowledge you as my source of all gifts and abilities today, Loving Creator, and thank you for…

No action or event happens without your hand upon us, O LORD. You stir in us to celebrate the accomplishments of others. Give us the strength and discernment to remember your hand in all of our triumphs, so we can gracefully accept accolades from others as your affirmation. Bless us with humility and strength to remember our calling and place among your creation.

With joy we praise you!
