Dear Friends,                                                                                                                                


God of new creating, who beckon us to the dance of birthing and sustains us in our labouring, hear this prayer:


From fear of the unknown

deliver me. 

From doubts of my creativity

deliver me.

From ridicule by those around me

deliver me.

From my excuses about my abilities, my age, my education, my looks, my status deliver me.


With your promise of companionship download Return to Oz

comfort me. 

With your creative spirit

bless me.

With your pledge of sustenance

strengthen me.

With your embrace of all of me

heal me and set me to motion.


You who called me to life that you may be born again in me, blessed be in this and all seasons!

An Advent prayer by Jan L. Richardson
