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:

Dear Lord,
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.
