The Trojaborg Labyrinth: Pilgrimage to Swedish Labyrinths On Gotland Island-3

Walking labyrinths with others is a beautiful way to re-member that while each of us is on our own journey, we are connected to those who have walked before us, those who walk beside us, and those who will walk behind us. On this island where life is continually influenced by the surrounding sea, I joined my deep longing with the prayers of others–first on the Trojaborg labyrinth, then in the cathedral by writing out my prayer and placing my words and intentions in a stone prayer-boat.

My Prayer

May I trust Your guidance–whether through calm or stormy waters.

St. Mary's Prayer Boat

Scriptural Touchstone: 

Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD their God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them… Psalms 146:5-6 (NRSV)

Invitation to Pray:

As you contemplate your connection with those in the past, present and future, what prayers are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.
