Good morning, Incarnation Family! I am still on a steep learning curve on how to "go live” on Facebook. Sarah Sawicki and Savannah are helping me and I hope I can accomplish that task before the day is over. Bear with me - it’s an age thing, you know!
One of my favorite devotional prayer books is titled “All Will Be Well: A Gathering of Healing Prayers.” I share one of those prayers with you today.
Almighty God and Father of us all,
Have mercy upon this troubled world of ours.
We are a pilgrim people, made of clay,
Captives of our own greed and frailty.
And yet, we are the work of your hands.
You have made us in your own image
And we bear within us
Your Spirit of life,
The seeds of immortality.
Give us, we pray
A stronger faith
So that we may walk joyously into the unknown,
An unshakable hope
So that we may comfort the despairing,
And a love
As vast as all the oceans
So that we may hold all humankind
In our hearts.
All powerful God,
Look in your love upon us, your pilgrim people,
As we struggle towards you.
Be our food for the journey,
Our wine for rejoicing,
Our light in the darkness,
And our welcome at journeys end.
