A Prayer for Sacred Pauses

Pausa sagrada Photo: Sophia Style ‘Gemma Polo’s sacred pause’

 

For when we realise that we need to stop and step off the highway of life, this beautifully succinct poem by Molly Remer helps us to soften the transition into moments of rest, those sacred pauses that we all deserve each day.

In particular during the days before the new moon, taking time out to relax deeply is fundamental for preparing ourselves for the new cycle.

A Prayer for Sacred Pauses

 

Goddess of the sacred pause

Please grant me the courage

To lay aside swiftness

And take up slowness,

To embrace limitations as learning,

Silence as stabilizing,

Waiting as worthy,

And sitting as divine.

Goddess of the sacred pause

Help me to know stillness as strength,

Patience as powerful,

And healing time

As holy necessity.
