Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation

The Perennial Tradition

A Prayer to Know Presence

Friday, January 24, 2014

My colleague and fellow faculty member of our Living School for Action and Contemplation, James Finley, offers a prayer for us to experience union with Divine Reality:

May each of us be so fortunate as to be overtaken by God in the midst of little things. May we each be so blessed as to be finished off by God, swooping down from above or welling up from beneath, to extinguish the illusion of separateness that perpetuates our fears. May we, in having our illusory, separate self slain by God, be born into a new and true awareness of who we really are: one with God forever. May we continue on in this true awareness, seeing in each and every little thing we see the fullness of God’s presence in our lives. May we also be someone in whose presence others are better able to recognize God’s presence in their lives, so that they, too, might know the freedom of the children of God.
