Prayer

Take a moment to breathe into the silence.

Our breath is always with us.
We can always come back to the breath,
our anchor, our grounding, our freedom.

Spirit of life and love,
we are here not just minds and hearts, but bodies too.
We human beings, spirit and body joined together.
On this day we send out a prayer or a wish
that every person, every being may be safe and well in body and in spirit.
May every person be well
and may we treat every person with respect and kindness and love.

On this day when we consider the connections
between our bodies and our spirits,
we lift up our hope and aspiration
that all people will live in freedom to give and guard their bodies
as seems best to them,
and to exercise their own powers of moral discernment
around their fertility and creative potential.
May we remember that it is especially challenging
for those who are living in poverty to exercise these rights,
and may our society support them in every way possible.

We say a special prayer for all those who have experienced violence or abuse
or any other form of damage to their being which is so precious.
May they know safety and healing.

For all of us, may our physical being be a source of delight
and well-being as we live in this world.

May every being may be safe and well in body and in spirit.
May every person be well
and may we be vessels of compassion for everyone we meet.
 
Amen.
