Sabbath Prayers.

by Chris Kamalski

O God, because without You we are not able to please You, mercifully grant that Your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule my heart; through Jesus Christ Our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.  (The Divine Hours)

Give me courage to be fully alive today.  To embrace this moment with destiny.  To choose life, make beauty and risk love, with every thought, in every touch, with every word, in every act, with every breath…in grateful submission to the mystery of being and belonging to this people and place and to You.  (Mark Scandrette)
