Prayers, Unsorted

Together

For the parts

of us

that grieve

for all that

can’t be expressed

in words,

for the frustration

that comes

when words are

attempted

and seen to be

insufficient,

I offer my deepest

silent prayer.

Know that we don’t

grieve alone —

even when it seems

we are on opposing sides

on the surface.

Somewhere, below

the surface stories

and very real

pain,

we know we are

connected.

And we know

there is a part

of us that

is healed.

May it continue

to whisper

as we find courage

to hold our grief

and our healing

together.

Amen

Prayers

Transformed

I honor each

heart that has

shown up

to find its own

true voice

at a time

when so much

is being

transformed.

I honor the sacred

journey each one

must travel

alone

in order

to come together

in a new way.

I honor those

who hold a space

for me

to sort through

all that is in need

of sorting.

I honor

this journey

in my own heart.

And I hold this space

for those

just beginning.

Amen

Prayers

Gentle Loving Strength

Thank you

for the ability

to be gentle and loving

and the strength

to go against

what we must —

to follow

our own hearts.

Remind us of the beauty

that comes out of

living from a place

of true compassion.

Give us courage

to find our own

inner space

and to honor

this space in others —

to keep returning

and living

from here —

that we may

truly love.

Amen
