Survivor's Prayer

Spirit of Life,
Touch with love our unseen wounds.
Where we have known fear, touch us with trust.
Where we have known pain, touch us with healing.
Where we have been tethered, set us free to soar.
Touch our silence and give us voice.
Touch our anger and give us justice.
By your handiwork shall we know you.
Blessed be.

—Pam Kittredge-Pederson
