Saturday: the ground of fruitful vision

O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration,
Soften the ground of our being and carve out
a space within us where your Presence can abide.
Fill us with your creativity
so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission.
Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with your desire.
Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share
what each being needs to grow and flourish.
Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us,
as we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes.
Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our true purpose,
but illuminate the opportunities of the present moment.
For you are the ground and the fruitful vision,
the birth, power and fulfillment,
as all is gathered and made whole once again.

a paraphrase of the Lord's Prayer, printed in this month's newsletter from my local hospital's spiritual care office.
