Offering reverence to the male half of the divine, the Great Father
Spirit poster offers prayer to the Great Father, seeking the wisdom and
gifts that he bestows upon us. The words of Travis Bowman guide us
through this prayer, while the vivid illustrations of Eliot Alexander
bring it to life upon the poster.
Each such parchment poster measures 8"
by 11' and reads:
Great Father Spirit,
Bless you for the Gifts
Of creation and protection,
For your strong and stable presence,
For the protective space within your arms.
I pray for your guidance.
Show me the path to right action.
Help me find the words to
Softly instruct and support.
Help me remember the lessons
Learned from my father
And all the fathers I've witnessed.
Help me discern what lessons to share
And when silence might be a better teacher.
Remind me, please
Of the tender beauty
And vital responsibility
Involved in what I do.
My heartbeat holds
All the footsteps that have come before,
And it will set the future rhythm in kind.
Help me hold the beat steady.
