Heavenly Father, Earthly Mother,
Gracious God of All:
We reach out to you as the Creator
of every minute of our lives.
Let us open our hearts to receive the healing Love you shower upon us.
May we know the deep truth of your Compassionate and Generous Spirit
as it awakens divine healing in us.
Blessed be. Amen.

Meditation Prayer for the Center for Grieving Children

May the grieving children, and their families
Who enter these doors
Find here a new kind of home, Or perhaps an old kind of home,
Created by people who ourselves
Know tears and anger and love.

We create this home anew
Every night the stars come out,
Every day the sun shines,

Though clouds may hide the light:

Those old stars have been in our sky for over 10 billion years,
That old sun has been in our sky for over a billion years.

And will be tonight,
And will be today.

Birds have been here for 150 million years,
Cats and dogs have been here for 36 million years.

When we came, 2.5 million years ago,
We began loving, We began grieving.

And we are grieving still, tonight and today,
Here in our new home,

Where tears are welcome,
Where anger is welcome,
Where love is welcome,
Where you are welcome.
