Prayers of the People: Rainow Trinity

Let us pray for our community and our world.


O God who we create from the sum of all we know that is wonderful

generous, true and wise

Creative spirit, Ground of our Being, Christ within:

Goddess and Gaia; Cosmic parent and Pentecostal flame


may we see ourselves in the god-ness of others

and ourselves in their image of you.



Sophia Wisdom, who changes through time

who appears in different guises,

in wind and fire, in storm and in stranger

in chariots of fire

and still small voice of the desert

whose names are numerous and whose voices are many


may we hear you in canticles and ballads, workers’ songs and lullabies

see the Rainbow Evolution in diverse creatures and flourishing lives.



Oh Christ who manifests in rainbow ways,

as ancient wisdom and holy fool

as genderqueer, cis and bi, ungendered, straight: diverse and beautiful

as rabbi, story-spinner, joker and sage


Be in us as we colour outside the lines.

Be in the songs we sing

the wine we pour

the food we share.
