Prayer Station Invitation: “Divine Gardener”
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
(King James Bible, John 20:16)
It is my hope that your hearts may become as ready ground, carefully tilled and prepared, upon which the divine showers of the bounties of the Blessed Perfection may descend and the zephyrs of this divine springtime may blow with quickening breath. Then will the garden of your hearts bring forth its flowers of delightful fragrance to refresh the nostril of the heavenly Gardener.
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 23)
What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, music, fellowship, food cooked with love, tea poured in peace, cake shared with smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator and recharges us for the week ahead.
I invite you and your loves ones to the regular Monday evening interfaith Prayer Station!
I have many books of prayers from different faith traditions but if you wish, feel free to bring your own prayer.
We’ll start at 7 pm with light refreshments followed by reading, at 7:30 pm, of selected Holy Writings from diverse religions on the theme of Divine Gardener. We’ll also uplift and refresh our souls with music, and offer prayers as the spirit moves us. We’ll conclude with tea and cake.
We’ll also say prayers for anyone in need, so if you can’t join us and would like to request prayers please contact me.
