Philippians 2:1-11

Loving Divine Family,

We feel united with you, seeking your perfect spirit. We desire lives of peace and love. We want to glory in your perfect love for us, not in our own accomplishments or ambitions. Life-giving Spirit fills us, and we feel compelled to share your love with each other.

We are loved; we are blessed. We enter your sacred prayer space being honest with you. Your words of love bring us into inner harmony with ourselves, which leads to inner peace, calmness, and balance. We hear the invitation to be like-minded, having a spirit of love. Thank you for the opportunity to live in harmony with creation and other humans, working together to create something beautiful.

I feel your love surrounding me today, Beautiful Saviour, and thank you for…

Remove all selfish ambition from us, O LORD. Replace it with the desire to delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. We bow before you, Loving Saviour, for you have redeemed and returned us to you.

With joy we praise you!
