A breath prayer

Dearly Beloved,

Grace and Peace to you.
         
         
         Jesus said, “I give you a new commandment,
         that you love one another.
         Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.
         By this everyone will know that you are my disciples,
         if you have love for one another.”

                  —John 13.34-35

         A Breath Prayer

Be still. Be aware that God is with you,
loving you, embracing you,
love welling up in you like a spring,
the Beloved perfecting love in you.
Simply let this loving presence be with you.
Give your deepest intention to receiving God’s love,
breathing it in, letting it change you and give you life,
and breathing it out, letting it flow into the world
in all that you do.

Mindful of this, pray repeatedly,
breathing in, then breathing out:

         As you have loved me …
         so I love.

Let it become like a tune you can’t get out of your head.
Carry the prayer with you through the day.

         As you have loved me …
         so I love.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
