Prayers: “Spirit of creative good, be with us

Spirit of creative good, be with us when we are afraid.
Grant us the courage to do what we have to do.
Grant us the peace that passes understanding.

When we fail to find courage, or peace,
    May we find compassion for our brothers and sisters who also fail.
May we sometimes win the prizes that we fight for,
    And may we then know both pride and compassion.
May we be open to the candor of old age,
    And to the freshness of childhood.
May we give good memories.
    May we receive good memories.

May we have faith, O God.
Be merciful to us and help us to be merciful
    To one another and to ourselves. Amen.
