Join us in this prayer for creating words of hope and healing in 2019:
“Lord of all things, whose wondrous gifts to us
Include the shining symbols known as words,
Grant that we may use their mighty power
Only for God. Help us pass on
Small fragments of Your wisdom, truth and love,
Teach us to touch the unseen, lonely heart
With laughter, or the quick release of tears.
Let us portray the courage that endures
Defiant in the face of pain or death;
The kindness and gentleness of those
Who fight against the anger of the world;
The beauty hidden in the smallest things;
The mystery, the wonder of it all….
Open our ears, our eyes; unlock our hearts.
Speak through our work, Lord, if it be Your Will. Amen.”
