A Getting-Ready Prayer

puts on bracelets:         

God be in my arms and in my strength
in my lifting
embracing and letting go

puts in earrings:            

God be in my ears and in my hearing
in my listening
understanding and honoring

puts on necklace:           

God be in my throat and in my speaking
in my conversing
expressing and silence-keeping

puts on eyeliner:            

God be in my eyes and in my seeing
in my viewing
framing and witnessing

puts on lip balm:            

God be in my mouth and in my empathizing
in my acknowledging
celebrating and lamenting

looks in mirror:               

God let me bring about the kingdom
enter the Flow
and do the work of love
