Prayer

Spirit of all blessing,
be with us
in the ordinariness of our days.
May hope’s light guard us and keep cynicism from our hearts.
May the energy of laughter build endurance for the dark times of our lives.
May creativity’s vision grant the possibility of seeing old relationships with new eyes.
May the oil of healing keep us
from anger’s hardness or despair.
May the mantle of humility give courage to admit when we are wrong.
May compassion’s loom weave in us
the discipline to forgive.
May patience help us bear in mind
that ours is not the only scale of time.
May the flame of justice be a beacon for the choices we must make.
May peace be ever in us
and sustain our stressful days.

Spirit of all blessing,
be with us
in the ordinariness of our days.
