Prayer for Wednesday (Pioneer Day)

Today is Pioneer Day for Mormons, especially in Utah. The Muslim holy month of Ramadan continues today.

You have succeeded in life
when all you really want
is only what you really need.
~ Vernon Howard

Dear God,

We give thanks for places of simplicity and peace.
Let us find such a place within ourselves.

We give thanks for places of refuge and beauty.
Let us find such a place within ourselves.

We give thanks for places of nature’s truth and freedom,
of joy, inspiration, and renewal,
places where all creatures may find acceptance and belonging.
Let us search for these places in the world,
in ourselves, and in others.
Let us restore them. Let us strengthen and protect them,
and let us create them.

May we mend this outer world
according to the truth of our inner life
and may our souls be shaped
and nourished by nature’s eternal wisdom.

Amen

(Michael Leunig)
