Solstice Prayer 2012

Holy one of blessing
God of all
At this darkest time of the year
We light lights and give thanks, in our overlapping traditions.

Strangely and sweetly
We greet each other in fellowship and friendship
with wishes for health, merriment, good food, good company and Peace on Earth.

Strangely and sweetly
We come together and pray to you Holy One of Blessing
with thanks for miracles noticed and remembered at this darkest time of the year:
for the miracle of the return of the sun
for the miracle of victories over tyrants
for the miracle of a small crucible of oil that burned for eight days
and for the miracle of the birth of a baby who brought illumination into the world.

Holy one of blessing
God of all
as we light lights at this darkest time
generation after generation
year after year
we ask again for Your help Your love Your comfort Your support
that we may be partners with You and with each other
to bring our greatest hope our most desired wish our highest need of Peace on Earth.

Holy one of blessing
God of all
May it be so. May it be so.
