Prayer for Sunday (Shemini Atzeret)

The Jewish holiday of Sukkot ends and the holy day of Shemini Atzeret begins at sunset today.

Children have neither past nor future;
they enjoy the present,
which very few of us do.
~ Jean de la Bruyere

Blessed is the Child of Light
Who doth seek his heavenly Father
For he shall have eternal life.

He that dwelleth in the secret place
Of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow
of the Almighty.
For he shall give his Angels charge over thee
To keep thee in all thy ways.

Know ye that the Lord hath been
Our dwelling place
In all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or ever he had formed
The earth and the world
Even from everlasting to everlasting,
Hath there been love
Between the Heavenly Father
And his children.

And how shall this love be severed?
From the beginning
Until the ending of time
Doth the holy flame of love
Encircle the heads
Of the Heavenly Father
And the Children of Light:
How then shall this love be extinguished?

For not as a candle doth it burn,
Nor yet as a fire raging in the forest.
Lo, it burneth with the flame
Of Eternal Light,

And that flame cannot be consumed.

(from the Essene Gospel of Jesus)
