A prayer to the cosmic christ

O you who animate the universe
You who are mother and father to us all
You who give us the blessing of life
You who live inside us and without
May we learn to see You in creation
And may we find in this a comfort
And a celebration.

May we find a name for you that we can love –
A call sign to help us find You.
A mantra to mutter as we centre ourselves
And try once more to treat others as we would have ourselves be treated.

So may it be. Amen.
