EARTH ASKS FOR PRAYER
Seeding Earth with Prayer
Prayer of the World brings forth the voices of stone, star, sea and the beings of creation, pleading with us to join the ongoing Prayer of life that is all around us. Kathleen Maia and Ken Tapp went as pilgrims to many sites, listening, writing, taking photos.
At several sites the plea from Earth was especially strong:
From the Gulf Shore during the Oil Spill
"The grief of Earth
can no longer be contained
In a time of change and upheaval,
many are confused;
they look to charts numbers graphs.
Look to Earth's heart.
There is a level of heart
that your instruments
Earth's heart needs
The Prayer of the World."
A Project for Earth
Seeding the Earth With Prayer
Bring to mind a place that is no longer the way you remembered it in the past. Consider taking the Prayer of the World to that place. Read some of the Prayer-- and any other prayers you wish. Asking prayerful permission, leave the book in that place--tuck it into the Earth-- a gift of prayer, seeding the Earth with prayer.
"I am Mother
I speak from the oil-filled sea
I ask for the song of healing
My Song in me for me
Now is the time to raise the song of Love
the Prayer of Earth
Your prayers help gather all back into My Breath
to heal the suffering beings
of this water of this land of the world
please heal me sing me back to strength
the time of the singing is here."
"We remember how you were.
And our prayer is for you to return."
We'd love to hear about where you went. If you took any photos, we'd love to see them. Please use the contact box on the website and let us know. We're preparing a website map to share where Prayer of the World has traveled.
