Rev. Ken's Weekly Prayer
Rev. Ken’s Weekly Prayer (4/9/21)
Hello! It is time for our weekly prayer now, and I wanted to talk to you about, what I am calling this time is: “After Resurrection. Chop Wood, Carry Water.” So after the Easter extravaganza we experienced last week here at Unity San Francisco, when after all the openings, the vaccinations, the things that are unfolding in our country and in the world, there is a lot of pent up energy waiting to explode, in us and everywhere around us, and a lot of unfulfilled longings and needs from the year. What I want to offer for us in prayer today is how to do this mindfully; how to enter this new era, this new time of regeneration, or renewal, and enter it mindfully. So let’s take that to prayer. I invite you to get comfortable, to allow whatever piece of furniture you are sitting on, or laying on at the moment, to hold you completely; and to allow my words to become your words.
As we breathe into this moment, we feel the presence of the Divine in us, and in every cell, and as our being; for we live, and move, and have this being in Spirit, in the wholeness of the Divine, in the energy and the life force that sustains all.
So we know that in this moment our desires, or longings, our heartfelt wishes are implants of the Divine; that longing of life to express itself fully. So we see all the possibilities that lie right at our fingertips in front of us. We choose each and every one, fully and completely, and wholly mindfully. So as we step into the expansion of life, we experience it with all of our senses, with all of our awareness, and we share it with the world. Every moment, every interaction is a gift. Every conversation a blessing. Every experience an opportunity. The old expression from scripture, “This is the day that God has made. We choose to rejoice and be glad in it,” fits today as we say, “This is the moment of Divine energy in my life. I choose to see it wholly and fully, and to celebrate it with all of may being. And so it is. Amen.
Namaste! I look forward to praying with you again soon. (4/9/21)
