Prayer - the ups and downs of life


Prayers for honesty in yourself

Liberating God,
Free us from wrong-headed religion and ritual,
From self-indulgence and self-deceit,
That we may share the joy of your freedom
In unbinding those who live in darkness
And in the shadow of death.

Joy Tetley, Prayers Encircling the World.


I think I know this and that
But what do I really know
And what do I believe
And how do I know that my beliefs are more valid than his or hers?

Help me to cast aside this need to be right
And sink into the necessity of being.
