Prayer for Healing

A small bird (pied wagtail) in someone's hand.

Torn and confused, 
lonely and enraged, 
I greet the new day with suspicion. 
Spirit of Life, 
show me the gate to healing. 
May I find in my hands the tools 
to craft a way through the pain. 
When even those tools fail me, 
may other hands reach out. 
Let me welcome them, 
and know them as your hands, 
gently holding me, 
keeping me from collapse, 
shaping me and molding new strength 
until I am ready to try again.
