Oh Thou Who Art Unchangeable! Oh Thou Whom nothing changes! Oh Thou Who Art unchangeable in love! Precisely for our welfare, not submitting to any change, may we too will our welfare, submitting ourselves to the discipline of Thy unchangeableness. Not art Thou like a man. If he is to preserve only some degree of constancy, he must not permit himself too much to be moved, nor by too many things. Thou on the contrary, art moved, and moved in infinite love by all things. The need of a sparrow, even this moves Thee, but nothing changes Thee. Oh Thou Who Art unchangeable! Oh Thou Who in infinite love dost submit to be moved, may this our prayer also move Thee, to add Thy blessing to one who prays, to bring one into conformity with Thy unchangeable will. Oh Thou Who Art unchangeable!
Great Spirit, Great Spirit, My Grandfather! Only with your power can I face the winds. Look upon these faces of children, with children in their arms, that they may face the wind, and walk the good road to the day of quiet. This is my prayer, hear me now!
Mother of All, Father of All! As I go through the day, keep my eyes open wide. May I not miss beauty, may I not miss joy, may I not miss wonder. The day's blank slate lies before me, ready for my writing. May it be words of beauty that I write, may it be deeds of grace that I do, may it be thoughts of joy that I think.
Goddess, I give you my essence to hold! In safety with love's power untold. Protect your son, and draw ever near, lest he stray upon the path of fear. I heed your advice, protection and love, and light fall upon me, from Thine light above.
GOD, grant us knowledge that we may write according to Your Divine precepts. Instill in us a sense of Your purpose. Make us servants of Your will and grant us a bond of selflessness, that this may truly be Your work, not ours.
Personal Penance: God, You love me very much because I am me. Help me to remember all the things You've done for me, are doing for me, and will do for me. You have plans for my eternal happiness, and are with me now in this effort to bring peace, and closure to my past life. Help me to grow in Your knowledge and love, through all my travails and difficulties in the past, and present, because the past is still affecting my present.
May the light of God surround you, may the love of God enfold you, may the power of God protect you, may the presence of God watch over you. Wherever you are, God is, and all is well.
