    Hebrews 4:12

    For the Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the joints and arrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    For the Word of God is the all merciful Christ and Messiah, the first source and sustaining power of all creation and all life.

    The Word of God is written unto the hearts of all men, piercing the vanity of self and splitting asunder the temptations of weak and dying flesh from the greater ways of eternal Spirit. For this Word is the voice of Spirit which wreaks havoc upon the carnality of flesh, inevitably leading all fallen back to that Spirit which is our God, the source of our own creation.

    This voice is indwelling to all, the voice which in moments of stillness we know to be God. It is the voice of discernment and conscience which betters our fallen species, leading us to abandon harsh condemnation of another for scrupulous judgement of self, to give grace rather than vengeance and charity rather than greed. This is the voice of the indwelling God and the salvation of our most troubled species.
    Hear now O Lord, this humble prayer of supplication.

    Silence the clamor of self O Lord, that all men may more clearly hear your eternal voice. For you have made known this voice to be the voice of salvation, calling we fallen from the petty concerns of passing flesh. In this voice of peace, justice and charity shall we trust, exuding the ways of the Risen God upon all of the vanity of the fallen realm. For that which is now fallen shall be then uplifted as the ways of God flow through the hearts of men and the works of your Spirit be accomplished by the deeds of our hands. And in that holy day shall the oracles of your prophets become all-fulfilled as every knee bends before you, the all holy God, the Creator, Spirit and Savior of all things.

    Now and forever, Amen.
