Prayer a Day- November 26

My heart speaks with words my tongue cannot yet shape, an earnest upwelling of Thanksgiving for the rich loam in which our lives are rooted,
fecund with the blessing of the Ancestors,
fed as well by the unacknowledged theft of lands yet unceded crying out for their stewards,
a legacy it is ours to heal as so much is ours to heal, the grace afforded us to choose meaning
in the balance of our lives.
May we do it honor, embody justice,
kindle the flames of compassion
with gratitude for all this life bestows.
