To your enemy, forgiveness.

To an opponent, tolerance.

To a friend, your heart.

To a customer, service.

O God, early in the morning I cry to you.

Help me to pray

And to concentrate my thoughts on you

I cannot do this alone.

In me there is darkness,

But with you there is light

I am lonely, but you do not leave me

I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help

I am restless, but with you there is peace.

In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience

I do not understand your ways,

But you know the way for me…

Restore me to liberty,

And enable me to live now

That I may answer before you and before me.

Lord, whatever this day may bring,

Your name be praised.

 

Amen

Here I Am Lord

Here I Am Lord

I, the Lord of sea and sky

I have heard my people cry

All who dwell in dark and sin

My hand will save.

I who made the stars and night

I will make the darkness bright

Who will bear my light to them

Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord

Is it I Lord?

I have heard you calling in the night

I will go Lord

If you lead me

I will hold your people in my heart.

I the Lord of snow and rain

I have borne my people’s pain

I have wept for love of them

They turn away.

I will break their hearts of stone

Fill their hearts with love alone

I will speak my word to them

Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord

Is it I Lord?

I have heard you calling in the night

I will go Lord

If you lead me

I will hold your people in my heart.

I will hold your people in my heart…

Ritual

I clear the space that surrounds us.

I set aside the clutter of my day

so the chaos does not obstruct my view

 

I clear myself.

I breathe out the weight of my ego

so my heart is opened to you

I open my eyes.

I find all of you at my side,

waiting for my frantic mind

to settle finally on all

 

We meet,

joining in the sacred ceremony of our routine

in the quiet motions that still my wild heart.

It’s time to be in this moment.

I am with all of  You and nowhere else.
