Creator of the Universe, Loving Mystery, Womb of Silence,

you have brought me out of the narrows into a broad and spacious place.

I will not return to confinement, but remain here in your generous freedom.

I guard the silence at the center; I hold the moment empty and open.

I breathe in, and make sanctuary in my body for you.

I make room in my thoughts for you to enter and be at peace.

I offer openings in my day, where you may rest.

I create space in my living for you alone.

I enter the holy of holies where you make of this moment

the void of Creation, the gift of Sabbath.
