Prayer of Blessing

Haystack Rock

May the angels of light

glisten for us this day.

May the sparks of God’s beauty

dance in the eyes of those we love.

May the universe

be on fire with Presence for us this day.

May the new sun’s rising

grace us with gratitude.

Let earth’s greenness shine

and its waters breathe with Spirit.

Let heaven’s winds stir the soil of our soul

and fresh awakenings rise within us.

May the almighty angels of light

glisten in all things this day.

May they summon us to reverence,

may they call us to life.
