Friday Prayer

Life-giving Mother, Strengthen me to say… To the spiritual forces that oppose you, Get behind me, Satan! To the political forces that subvert your desire for healing and wholeness, Get behind me, Adversary! To the force within me, struggling for control of others and all situations, Get behind me, Sin!   I renounce the forces… Read More

Friday Prayer: A Request

Holy God- I do not believe in substitutionary atonement. In my mind, it is anathema that you would require blood, sacrifice, or death to bring things into balance between the Divine Self and the Beloved Creation. However, I could be wrong.

If we, if I, stood in solidarity with those who are oppressed, pressed, suppressed, depressed, distressed, de-tressed,… Read More

Friday Prayer: Forgive my Unbelief
