Good Evening Beloved
Welcome to our Morning Prayer and Meditation Service.
My name is The Reverend Ari-John White-Wolf and I will be your facilitator this morning.
Here we are to locate our Joy. Let joy abound and be limitless in our lives. Please allow yourself to rest in a comfortable position as we begin our Prayer & Meditation time together. Joy is a comfort in troubled times. It is here for us right now. Now, go ahead and take in a in through your nose, and exhale through your mouth. Filling the lungs by breathing in the presence of joy. Allowing all that needs to be set aside, to dissolve and fade away. This joy is ours at any moment, or given situation.
The Sacred Text from today’s Daily Word the book of Psalm 118:24
-- "This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” -
Today in this virtual service: we open ourselves up to infinite blessings and joy.
We are free. There is no puzzle to solve. Freedom gives us the ability to no longer be trapped in old ways of thinking. The key to tomorrow’s liberty, is to live free today.
This joy we know, is a true blessing and allows us to see. That there is but one presence, and one power in my life, God the Good.
Divine Love you see us all in this space. Where two or more are gathered, you are an answer to all prayer needs and concerns.
We consider those who are suffering in their afflictions and their isolation. We lift them up and hold them in that perfect light. Collectively we see them all whole and complete.
We light a candle in our heart space, it is our representation of our needs and concerns. We hold this image in our collective thoughts and prayers. This strength comes from being together, and we are one, our intentions are heard and accomplished. We are whole.
(I Am Love - Sue Riley)
I am love, I am free at this moment to make a choice for love. Free to be the voice of love to all of my neighbors. Right here in this place, I hold them in that perfect light. I am peace, free to make a choice of peace for our Nation. I am peace and free to make the choice of peace for the entire World.
Let the great I Am gently recede back into your living space. You are surrounded by that perfect love. I am love. I choose love. Peace washes over me. I make the choice for peace, and Joy.
This is the conclusion of our Prayer time.
We now begin our time of meditation.
If during this Meditation you find things slipping into your meditation. You can make your way back to contemplative joy by focusing on your breath. Let that image, slip away. Now beloved, I invite you to relax, release, and let go through the breath. Breathe in through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Breathe in this wonderful experience and presence of joy. Inviting Divine love to overflow and be the awesome I Am in your life. We are the light of love, it is the experience of joy. We are blessed during these moments of meditation, and we are whole.
Relax and enjoy the meditation music, followed by a few moments of complete silence.
I invite you to discover what is yours to do in the silence.

This concludes our time of Meditation.
The theme today is based on the Daily Word it is Joy. I would like to share this closing affirmation with you. I will say it once and then you can repeat it with me.
"Joy is my constant companion."
"Joy is my constant companion"
Thank you for your presence this morning. It was my pleasure to spend this time with you. Together we build our spiritual bodies. When we Pray and Meditate during these moments. We become stronger aspects of joy for the world.
We close this period of prayer and meditation with a sense of joy, peace, and love. It is my sincere hope that you are gentle with yourselves and with others. Consider being a lighthouse for others, rather than a storm.
I invite you to pray the blessing with me for yourself and for others.
We love you, we bless you, we appreciate you, and we behold the Christ you are!
(I send my love)
