Meditation on Hope and Love in a Time of Struggle
Meditation

In a world so filled with brokenness and sorrow
It would be easy to lose ourselves in never ending grief,
To be choked by our outrage
To be paralyzed by the enormity of suffering,
To feel our hearts squeeze tight with hopelessness.

Instead, this morning, let us simply breathe together as we hold our hearts open.

Breathing in as our hearts fill with compassion

Breathing out as we pray for healing in our world & in our lives.

Breathing in, opening ourselves to the transforming power of love

Breathing out as we pray for peace in our world & in our lives.

Breathing in as we hold hope in our hearts

Breathing out as we pray for justice in our world & in our lives.

May we know our strength
May we be filled with courage
May our love flow from us into this world.

Breathing in, we are the prayer

Breathing out, we are the healing

Breathing in, we are the love

Breathing out, we are the peace

Breathing in, we are the hope

Breathing out, we are the justice

May we know our strength
May we be filled with courage
May our love flow from us into this world.

Amen, blessed be, may it ever be so.
