Freedom!

What an emotional and evocative picture. In the loss, there is gain.  From the confine of the grave, there is resurrection. From the “imprisonment” of the wheelchair, there is FREEDOM!

A Prayer {from the New Zealand book of prayer [cc]}

Eternal Spirit, Earthmaker, Pain-bearer, Life-giver, Source of all that shall be. Father and Mother of us all. Loving God, in whom is heaven;

May the hallowing of your name echo through the Universe! May the way of your justice be followed by the peoples of the world! May your heavenly will be done by all created beings! May your commonwealth of peace and freedom sustain our hope and may it come on earth.

With the bread that we need for today, feed us.
In the hurts that we absorb from one another, forgive us.
In times of temptation and test, strengthen us.
From trials too great to endure, spare us.
From the grip that is evil, free us.

For you reign in the glory of the power that is love. Now and forever, now and forevermore.

Amen.

Freedom and Tyranny

Great quote! Unfortunately, however, it appears to be from Voltairine de Cleyre (1866-1912) rather than Voltaire (François-Marie Arouet, 1694-1778).
