These prayers of mine are not new, but they remain relevant, and will soon be published.
Mothering God, hold in the safe embrace of your love
Those who mourn
Those who ache with longing
Those whose hearts are pierced as by a sword
Mothering God, like a small child learning to walk, take by the hand
Those who attempt new things
Those who are uncertain or unsure
Those who wobble and weave
Mothering God, like a dancing partner, spin with delight
Those who rejoice in success
Those whose dreams have found fulfilment
Those who dream the dreams of your Kingdom
Mothering God, grant they all may find themselves
Like a weaned child
On the parent's knee.
