Opening Prayer delivered by Chris Bryant
In this moment, I choose to relax. I take a deep breath, and exhale. I allow myself to be fully present, and fully aware. I do this so I may enjoy this sacred moment, and each sacred moment.
And in this moment, I express my reverence for God, as the Source & Creator of all Life.
My life is blessed with Divine Love and Holy Spirit. Everywhere I turn….God Is.
If I listen to the morning birds as they begin to welcome spring, I am reminded that Life is eternal and filled with sweet joy. As I see the yellow daffodils starting to bloom against the barren ground, I behold the Gentle Beauty of Life that is forever unfolding. If I stand in the spring rain, open to the freshness of the moment, I feel renewed in Spirit. As I look into the eyes of another, I recognize the God within, and I lean into the understanding that I am One with All Life. I am connected to, bonded with and infused with The Divine.
So on this lovely day, I am reminded of the essential things of Life. I allow myself to be spiritual nourished, to be inspired and refreshed. I am here focused on gratitude so love and peace and joy flow freely in each present moment. With my heart full of gratitude, I say Amen.
This week's Affirmation
I now soften into the safety and inspiration of this present moment. I stand with others of like mind in the conviction that the activity of God’s Love and Goodness is the only true power. I know that divine adjustment is taking place to bring our country and our world into balance. As I stand in the softness of God’s Peace, I clear the way for divine guidance in my own life. I trust that God’s unlimited abundance and joy is flowing unobstructed, bringing with it patience, clarity of thought, creativity and vitality. With a grateful heart for all that is beautiful and good, I let it be so.
