Awaken us to interconnectedness of all beings, to all that fly and swim, to all that walk and crawl upon the earth!
A Lectio Divina meditation on Psalm 58 from Nan Merrill’s book Psalms for Praying
Experience stillness and in the quiet hear what God is offering from these rich and hope-filled words.
Do the leaders of the nations know
what is right? Or
are their hearts set on power
Do they look within for guidance, to

In who, can the people
put their trust?
The ignorant go astray, following
idol gods of illusion;
they err in their blindness,
fooling only themselves.
They are filled with conceit and
As the hunter with sweet bait
lures the deer with intent
The weak become food for the arrogant.
O Beloved, open our eyes;
break through the darkness of
tear down the walls of our fear!
Let us trust in the Divine Moment,
living as children with trust

Free to choose the creative path,
walking in harmony to the
Awaken us to interconnectedness
of all beings,
to all that fly and swim,
to all that walk and crawl
upon the earth!
Those who know Love will rejoice as
the nations learn to cooperate,
as the peoples of earth recover
their true heritage.
People will say, “The time has come
to dwell in peace and integrity;
to walk together in the Light
of the Most High,
Heart of the Universe!”
