A Prayer for Sunday 28th June

Praise be to the God of the sunshine, for your bountiful blessing this week. We thank you for the lifted moods, the vitamin D and the fun with hosepipes and small children. We ask you to care for those who have become ill due to heat, who have no space to enjoy and no fans to keep them cool. We recognise the inequality and we call it out, we ask for your forgiveness for our part in it and we pray you will lead us to places we can be mouthpieces for justice.

Praise be to the God of the rain, for your bountiful blessing this week. We thank you for the saturated soil, the lush green leaves and the kaleidoscope of blooms. We ask you to care for those who have not yet experienced the outdoors this year, or for longer, for whom their environment is concrete and dull. We recognise the inequality and we call it out, we ask your forgiveness for our part in it and we pray you will call us to places we can act in mercy to bring freshness of live and love.

Praise be to the God of the storm, for the world hears you now. We thank you for Pride, Black Lives Matter and all other movements stirring up in people’s hearts and minds as we find anger and despair need to be channelled. We recognise the inequality and we call it out, we ask your forgiveness for our part in it and we pray you will use us to bridge gaps, be peacemakers, reconcilers, lovers and lights in your world.

May your radical, inclusive, non-discriminatory, holistic, unconditional love and relationship be known and offered to all who seek, all who need, and all who yearn.

Amen

Peace be with you.

I am a Music Therapist, Worship Leader and Theologian with The Ordinary Office, an online community for disabled and disenfranchised Christians. As a writer, seeker and learner, I have a special interest in music and spirituality, and I believe that Jesus' message of love for one another supersedes religious rules and doctrines that harm. Focusing on inclusive and liberation theologies, through a lens of disability and trauma-informed approaches, I take my lived experiences and transform pain into action, living out God's call upon my life as a 'Twitter Mystic' and 'Prophetic Voice' - although I just get on with calling things as I see them without the fancy labels, really. I hope you find something here which interests and challenges you. Feel free to contact me for discussion any time!
