Dear Correspondents, Vision Mentors, Editorial Mentors and WP Staff & Admin,
Here is a lovely meditation/prayer to start us on our way. The author is unknown, or at least has been disputed.It is one of my favorite Interfaith prayers and a lovely way to feel a fresh beginning. - Rev. Sarah
Wash from me all that I think I am,
My struggles, my stands, my cherished opinions,
My soaring dreams and deadening fears,
Leave me only your purity and your grace.
Wipe away the mask of judgment
I have placed on your children
And show me the faces made in your likeness,
That I may see my own as well.
Brush aside all shrines to the future,
All altars to the past, replace them with love.
Give me your golden present;
A home in you, immovable and eternal.
Still all voice within me,
Fill me with the hush of your peace.
Now you are my thoughts, my purpose and my way.
All I need, and all I am, is you.
