Tuesday Prayer

O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos,
Focus your light within us--make it useful:
Create your reign of unity now--
Your one desire then acts with ours,
As in all light, so in all forms.
Grant what we need in each day in bread and insight.
Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
As we release the strands we hold
Of other's guilt.
Don't let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back.
From you is born all ruling will,
The power and the life to do,
The song that beautifies all,
From age to age it renews.
Truly--power to these statements--
May they be the ground from which all
My actions grow.
