Prayer Offered for June 23, 2022

Today we pray a psalm from the Chinook Psalter:

The garden is rich with diversity,

With plants of a hundred families

In the space between the trees,

With all the colors and fragrances.

Basil, mint, and lavender—

Great Mystery keep my remembrance pure.

Raspberry, apple, rose—

Great Mystery fill my heart with love.

Dill, anise, tansy—

Holy winds blow in me.

Rhododendron, zinnia—

May my prayer be beautiful.

May my remembrance, O Great Mystery,

Be as incense to thee,

In the sacred grove of eternity,

As I smell and remember

The ancient forests of Earth.—AMEN.

(Chinook Psalter)
