Prayer: Creating hope together

Provident God,
dispelling darkness with the gift of a new dawn,
fuel me with sensitivity and wisdom
to break boundaries and create hope.

Wherever the path leads,
companion me with many
who will lure me to dive deep within
the mystery of grace evolving in me,
and to reach out to others
whom I can support.

In partnership, may we claim
the gift we can be to each other
and to generations yet to come.

May we rejoice in the bonds
of collaboration that join us.

Courageously, may we daily travel the path of Providence
that you unwind before us.
