New Year 2013 Blessing Poem

To 2012 we say good bye. 
It had moments that made us laugh 
Moments that made us cry. 

We now look to the coming year 
With feelings of optimism 
And perhaps a touch of fear 

May the coming year see harmony increase 
Brothers and sisters on all sides 
Work together for abundance and peace. 

Let’s welcome in 2013 
Wonders will soon be seen.

End of the Mayan Calendar (Prayer)

Dear God, 
We are ready for the beginning of a new cycle of our humanity, knowing that whatever may happen you will still be with us. Your love and peace will continue to surround us. Your wisdom will continue to guide us. Your life will continue to flow through us. Help us to gently release what no longer works in our lives. Help us to embrace new ways of being as individuals, as members of communities, as members of the human family, and as parts of the complex web of life on the planet. Help us to release our fears and embrace the wonders you have in store for us. Thank you for all the blessings in our lives and all the blessings yet to come.

Sandy Hook School in Connecticut Prayer

Dear God, 
We know that we are all your children. Today, we ask you to be with those affected by the school shooting at Sandy Hook School in Connecticut. Comfort those who have lost loved ones. Help us honor the beauty of the lives that have been lost. Heal the hearts and minds of those touched by the violence. Help them and all of us in the larger community to feel safe and know that there is a prevailing good that surrounds us. Help us to feel the power of your peace and love.
