A Prayer of Risk

Holy One

Who has given us the breath of life

Today we remember to

Breathe deeply

To rest

To take in

To pause

Before we act…

And then to take in another deep breath poised on the edge

And risk jumping in

Risk taking action

Risk speaking up

Risk using the gifts we have been given

So that at the end of our life we can say with absolute clarity that

No part of our existence was wasted in fear of failure

Or fear of success.

Hold us,

Prepare us the way to begin to offer the gift of our

Awakened presence

Full of love and light today.

These and the prayers of our hearts we lift up now

In the silence…
