I place on the altar of dawn:
The quiet loyalty of breath,
The tent of thought where I shelter,
Waves of desire I am shore to
And all beauty drawn to the eye.
May my mind come alive today
To the invisible geography
That invites me to new frontiers,
To break the dead shell of yesterdays,
To risk being disturbed and changed.
May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more.

To Bless the Space Between Us (US) / Benedictus (Europe)

A prayer written by Martyn Payne:
strengthen us to serve you in response to your love,
by giving freely to others without keeping a record,
by working hard for others without counting the cost
and by being a blessing to others without knowing it,
eager to do your will for your name’s sake.
