A Prayer for March
~ by Lady Dawnecia Palmer
“Life as Light, in God, through goodness come to us, now. Lighting our days, and making clear the path for us to trod.
Moving from the dark of winter towards the brightness of Spring, warm our hearts, still our fears, and delivers us from worry, hatred, blame, deceit, and many threatening dangers; which, oftentimes blight our joy, hinder our peace, and disturb our rest.
As the new month of March begins, and planetary forces prepare to endorse environmental changes on our world;
Life as Light, ready us too, by stirring a deeper, keener awareness of what is possible, so that with open hearts and ready mind, allow your kindness, love, and light, to fill our days and nights.
Let your brightness guide and lead, to heights of joy, and, unending realms of peace, till souls truly satisfied, in stillness rests.
