Daily Meditation: LGBT Pride

06/26/2015 09:55 am ET

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a portion of a prayer written by Rev. Meg Riley after the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act was approved by Indiana legislature in March 2015. June marks LGBT Pride Month, and with this meditation we honor and celebrate the lives of gay, lesbian, transgender, queer and questioning people everywhere.


A Prayer for LGBT People in Indiana (portion) by Rev. Meg Riley

This prayer is for you.
May you know you are a child of God, beautiful and beloved, just as you are.
May you know that your worth and dignity can never be voted away.
May you know your people, living, dead, not yet born, and hold them to you.
May you know that straight allies who hold you dear are aching with you.
May you feel the support of people you will never meet, of all orientations and genders.
May you refuse to be a witness in the trial against yourself and your people.
May you know that your love is the precious gift you have been given.
May you feel compassion for all the people, all around the world, who have been told they did not matter, and may that compassion sustain you.
May you live in love.

May you live in love.
