Praying with Miriam

God of us all, thank you for the life of Miriam of Nazareth, who walked the earth over 2000 years ago.  Thank you for blessing the world with Miriam’s son, Jesus, who grew in her womb, and whose life as an infant, child, and adolescent was shaped by her love. 

Miriam, our sister in faith, please pray with us to God… 

…that like you we can experience a profound relationship between our humanity and the Creator of the Universe — loving God with all our heart, soul, and strength… 

Miriam, our sister in faith, please pray with us to God… 

…that like you we may maintain a quality of spiritual purity, trusting our inner autonomy in relationship with the Divine… 

Miriam, our sister in faith, please pray with us to God… 

…that like you we may see holiness alive in us and around us, regardless of gender, class, religion, or the era in which we were born… 

Miriam, our sister in faith, please pray with us to God… 

…that like you we can testify, with grounded liberation, to the everyday good news for which we are grateful and hopeful… 

Miriam, our sister in faith, please pray with us to God… 

…that we too may cooperate with grace in welcoming that which is ours to do, with a courage that outweighs any fear… 

Miriam, our sister in faith, please pray with us to God… 

…that we may embrace the tangible and embodied parts of our story with serenity… 

Miriam, our sister in faith, please pray with us to God… 

…that we may remember our place in the communion of saints, that we too are invited to collaborate with you in bringing God’s love to the world… 

Eternal God, thank you for the ways in which one soul can inspire another.  Thank you for hearing all prayers between heaven and earth.  Please hold them in the heart of your loving energy that is the source of everything.  Amen.
