I know no We right now, feel only me, yet sense You, Love, hearing hell-on-earth bawls, seeing crestfallen eyes. Wasting away in my who-cares-anyway cell, I call Jesus, Help refugees! Free water protectors! Eternal Love Spirit puts me in solidarity with each displaced person. God, send New Advent Hope!
Lonely spirits sigh for You, Great Love; every bone and muscle craves Your strength. Some light candles; others wave smudge sticks. Hands up, we surrender in silence. Turn off our auto-pilot chatter, Heart Guide; defuse anger's explosives. Keep us on Your Peacemaking Wavelength, free of sound byte darts and impulses. Most Perceptive Counselor, help us correct our vision through friends' critiques. When will monied power grabbers lose their tearannical grip on sad souls?
Creator to whom all thanks is due, make sad, spiteful hearts grateful anew. Just Judge, heap shame on all who pollute, rob, rape, boast, abuse, lie and exploit. Merciful One, thank You for sneak peeks of Earth's inheritance by the meek.
Boundless Discerning Presence of Love* Your gaze tempers our travel urges, assuages desires to find ourselves. Your Lifelight fills us in sleep's dark womb; we wake mesmerized and mystified. Will we follow Your leading today? Will You please remove those who divide us from You and from one another? Look us in the eye, Love; see our fears; hold our gaze on Your endless Joyway. *Thanks to Peter Bankson of Seekers Church for "104 Million Metaphors for God"
Living Love, our hearts throb with grateful praise. We honor You in public prayer circles for Your laws of nature order our lives. Great Spirit, may rulers respect Your peace, realizing You befriend despised people but condemn and isolate despisers. Peace Prince, we trust Your wise leadership past denial or fear to creative joy.
Your peace people are held hostage, prostituted in babble land. Childhood is stolen; song stories shrivel in required performance. Holy Body of Christ, wake up! Resist false peace; work for justice.
Love Beauty, You bathe our senses each day with ever new sky, soil, water blessings. Your River of Kindness never runs dry. Universal Provider, You supply above and beyond all anyone needs. Your River of Kindness never runs dry. Merciful Justice Mystery, You demote demonizers; You will open duped minds. Your River of Kindness never runs dry.
Public servants, come outside every day; savor the wonders of skies and waters. Earth-tenders, publicize Creator's powers; common strugglers, Great Spirit breathes in you. God-love deflates windbags, disarms empires; heaven's pure voice sings through grateful hearts.
Love's standing invitation draws questers to Joy's summit. Dusk to dawn and dawn to dusk happy singers raise holy accolades to Creator. Peace pervades each listener's life.
Magnetic Love, in Your orbit tiny lights merge and multiply: christened friendships transcend family spaceships' long nights; kindred trios radiate joyous gratitude.
