 September Prayer

by Dawn Henninger Lantero
With September comes
Fall--the season of change.
The season of beauty
The season of harvest.
This year let us harvest new things,
Let us harvest compassion for our fellow humans.
Let us harvest patience and kindness.
Let us harvest a sprit of gratitude for all we have,
Let us harvest collaboration for the greater good,
and embrace the spirit of change that helps us all.
This year let us harvest new things,
Let us harvest responsibility for our words and their effect.
Let us harvest breath and pause rather than impulsive over reaction and hateful retort.
Let us harvest appreciation
for our planet, for our country, for our neighborhood.
For the seas and mountains,
for the trees and gardens,
for the animals and fishes and birds and insects.
And in this appreciation may we extend our care and protection.
Let us harvest new things. That is my September prayer.
