Prayers: “The Rainbow Prayer”
Great Rainbow Arch
your bright light
your seven colours
your cool dew
link sky and earth above the Christmas stable.
Hold us all in your encompassing arms.
Forgive our exclusion of others
earth and life and child.
So may we too forgive those who have excluded us.
Save us from the darkness of deep winter.
Show us the returning light;
for the light and the colours and the dew,
all space and time,
and your seven-fold rainbow compassion
dwell ever in God.
