Interfaith Prayers & Blessings by Abby Willowroot
 
We are all connected in this life,
when my neighbors do well, it benefits me,
when my neighbor suffers, it diminishes me.
The invisible threads that connect us are strong.
Bless is all with what we need to sustain us.
 
All things that happen send out ripples,
tiny waves of energy that change everything.
Forces for good or ill are constantly swirling,
moving us toward greater good or greater loss,
all of us are touched by the ripples.
May we be a positive force for the greater good,
sending out beneficial ripples, ripple after ripple,
help us to move the world in a better direction,
a fairer, kinder, more just, healing direction.
 
May our live's actions build beacons of hope.
We are all connected in this life,
in our thoughts, our actions, our beliefs,
there are always consequences for good or ill.
May we cause ripples of goodness in the World.
Bless the threads that bind us all together.
