The Lady’s prayer is a new take on the prayer format that Jesus offers in Matthew 6:9-13 with the Divine feminine as the listener and guide. It shifts the focus from the material to the immaterial kingdom and emphasizes our agency in the creation of a better life and a better world. As a daily meditation, the prayer centers us with love in our hearts, light in our spirits, and purpose in each breath.
The Lady’s Prayer
Our Mother, who art among us
A precious comfort be thy name
Thy domain is the heart
Thy will, the breath of life
Which is continually on the lips
Of every waking soul.
Suckle us each day at your breast
Guide us into healthy relationship
With ourselves and others
Teach us to be present to this moment
To find the path to wholeness and connection
For thine is the light
And the presence forever
