A Prayer for Wholeness

This piece was originally published at Ritualwell.org.

Oh World of Miracles, you are supremely broken.Your shards are painful and cutting.Your pieces are scattered across the globe, aching for wholeness.We seek justice and peace in you.We long and love, divine sparks igniting fires within us.We tend the embers and feed the flames, at times nearly consuming ourselves and our neighbors.We pray for—no, we demand—open heartedness and resilience.We seek grace and peace.We pursue justice.May the fragments of our world and the brokenness of our souls be blessed with strength, wisdom, and compassion.May we be whole again, quickly, in our days.
