Mother Goddess and Father God, I thank you for Life and its abundance, for family and friends, for my church, fellow UUs and fellow Pagans, for a good job and the opportunities it provides. I thank you for the opportunity to be of service – may I always serve humbly and sincerely… and effectively.
I thank you for this country and its freedoms – may we always live up to our highest ideals. I thank you for the new leadership – I ask you to bless them with the wisdom of their faiths and with the wisdom of many faiths, so that righteous men and women may lead us to a new time of peace, justice, and true prosperity.
And I ask you to bless and guide those of us who work to re-create the Old Ways for these new times as we honor our ancestors, our world, and our goddesses and gods.
