A Prayer for the Summer


Dear Readers, after a fortnight of hot weather and the passing of the summer solstice, we are now in the summer and I wish You an excellent one.

I do hope you get some time off to take a summer break. It’s been a tumultuous year.

I wish You all well this Sunday and leave You with a prayer for Your summer.

All the best.


A Prayer for the Summer

May you breathe in the beauty of summer with its power of transformation

May this beauty permeate all that feels un-beautiful in you.

May you seek and find spaces of repose during these summer months.

May these moments refresh and restore the tired places within you.

May you be open to times of celebration and recreation that are so much a part of summer.

May you find happiness in these times of play and leisure.

May your eyes see the wonders of summer’s colours.

May these colours delight you and entice you into contemplation and joy.

May you feel the energy of summer rains penetrating thirsty gardens, golf courses, lawns and farmlands.

May these rains remind you that your inner thirst need quenching.

May your inner self be refreshed, restored and renewed.

May you savour the fresh produce that comes to your table

And enjoy the fruits of summer’s bounty

May you find shelter when the stormy skies of summer threaten your safety.

May Spirit the Spirit give shelter when the inner storms threaten peace of mind and heart

May you enjoy the unexpected and find surprises of beauty and happiness

As you travel the roads on summer vacation and may you be led to amazing discoveries.
