Healing Hope: A Prayer

God, help me see You in me
Tune my ear to your Spirit’s voice
My heart to the humanity of your son

May I give blankets to those who are cold
Listening to those needing healing through being heard
Safe spaces for those grieving and hurting, who need presence, attunement and hope glimmers

Heal my weary heart
The trying-so-hard-scars from years of letting go, surrendering and looking for your Love
Has left me soul tired

Mend these places where trust is cautious
Peel back scabs where anger festers
Instill beauty to create and restore for your glory

Make me a campfire to warm myself and others
A blanket to comfort and offer care
A cake to remind of the delicious feast at your table.
