Prayer for Saturday (Mabon)

Today is the Pagan/Wiccan holiday of Mabon (Fall Equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere, and Ostara (Spring Equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.

Letting go gives us freedom,
and freedom is the only condition for happiness.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Mother of All,
I thank you for all the blessings I have received.
I thank you for each moment of my existence.
Help me to focus on this day, this moment,
and not dwell on the past,
which is gone and cannot be changed;
or on the future,
which will come in its own time.
May I always be present and centered in the moment
experiencing fully the Now
and all the beauty and joy it can bring.
And so it is.
Amen.

This Week’s Affirmation:

Prayer for Friday

Breathe. Let go.
And remind yourself that this very moment
is the only one you know you have for sure.
~ Oprah Winfrey

Father,
I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul;
I offer it to you
with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.

(Brother Charles de Foucauld)

Prayer for Thursday

You cannot let go of anything
if you cannot notice that you are holding it.
Admit your ‘weaknesses’
and watch them morph into your greatest strengths.
~ Neale Donald Walsch

Dear God,
I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!
Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?
Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?
Please help me to gradually open my hands
and to discover that I am not what I own,
but what you want to give me.
And what you want to give me is love—
unconditional, everlasting love.
Amen.
