Prayer „Sacred Ground“ for Devotion, Smallgroup and Service

Sitting on the balcony and reading, I suddenly observe a ladybug on a nearby plant. Downstairs at the yard is the laundry of some neighbours hanging, and the Golden Retriever from the teacher downstairs rolls happily on the grass and rubbs his back in a patch of moss. It`s his favourite spot, even though I never managed to unterstand why this patch of moss is different (and obviously better) of all the others. This seems like everyday life, nothing spectacular – but indeed, it`s sacred ground:

Sacred ground

Pause, my soul,
the ground on which you stand is holy.
God is here – invisible and inaudible,
but all the more powerful.
He surrounds you.

Stop, my soul,
where are you rushing to?
Everything you need is here.
You are standing on holy ground,
God is waiting right beside you.
Where are you running to?

Hold on, my soul,
God is in the background making changes.
He has everything in hand,
even if you still lack the perspective.
You are standing on holy ground, no matter,
what the apparent reality may be.

Pause, my soul.
Stop, here in his presence.
Hold on, for he will carry you to your destination.


I would be very happy if you use and share my prayers in your family, smallgroup or service. Please refer to me and use them only in a private, non commercial manner, thank you.
