Love to the World
by Rev. Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
“My Love goes out to everyone in the world;
I do not exclude anything,
for I love all Nature and everything that is.
My Love warms and lightens everything that it touches,
and it goes out into all places.
The Love flowing through me is a Power
to all who come into contact with it,
and all feel
and know that I love.
Love within me is Complete and Perfect.
Love within me is Complete.” Ernest Holmes
There is One Love so great that the entire universe is only a thumbnail in It. This Love, the One known by God and so many names, envelops everything, and creates from Itself. Love is Peace, Joy, Health, Joy, Grace, Good, Beauty, and Truth. Love is.
Because Love is, I am. I am made of the same stuff as the universe, the stars, and every being on this plane. I am made of Love and so is everyone and everything everywhere.
I affirm and declare that love flows over and through me and washes away anything like it. All fear, all anxiety, all anger, all unforgiveness cannot stand when love is present. I call love and know it. I surrender to love and feel it and, as I claim love as my experience, every person and situation of my life, past and present, are blessed. Peace is the new order of the day and grace is the method of business. All is well. I know this, too, for the person reading this prayer.
I am grateful for this; grateful for my life and for love. I am grateful for my family, my friends, and all people of the Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living. I am happy that right action is taking place in each of us constantly. Each of us, as the beloved of the Beloved, knows the world as a safe haven. We have each arrived home. Thank you.
With this, I release my word and know this prayer is done. And so it is. Amen.
