A prayer

Spirit of Light. Help us to look beyond. Beyond the blind eyes that imagine more than we can ever see; Beyond persuasive words, to the truth they try to conceal; Beyond materialist desire for things that can never make us truly happy.

Spirit of Love. Help us to look within. Within us lies a well of hope to tap when we despair; Within us lies a sea of calm to hold us amid the chaos; Within us lies an infinite source of love for others.

Spirit of Life. Help us to look into your mystery. Your mystery is a deep source of wonder; Your mystery is a duty to live fully; Your mystery is a call to nurture all life.

Spirit of Life, Love, and Light. Help us to know that both beyond us and within us, Lies eternal life, now.
