Come to my aid as I begin again.
Lead me to the right leads, let my resume sing its song
to the most receptive ears. Grant me that interview.
Turn us toward one another to see the hurting humans we are.
Oh God, be present in our family. Make peace possible.
Shore me up, You who make
all things possible. Grant me hope.
Give me strength. Help me be open
to what may be — fewer hours,
less money, even a change in jobs.
Show me clearly the path Providence
is unfolding for me today.
Grant me the courage to walk it,
fearlessly as you want me to.
All we can do is remember: With God all things are possible,
even the mending of a broken home.
Guide us — seller and buyer both —
through this change
with open and eager hearts.
I turn to you for comfort, for the sure knowing
that my pet is with you forever and that
some far-off day, we will be reunited.
I ask the Creator of Life
to hear my cries.
Soothe my soul, my aching arms
that long for a baby to hold.
I celebrate the life of the beloved I knew,
the hands I held, the life I shared.
God, who forms all creatures with loving hands,
bless this, our new companion animal.
Help us to commit to peace
in our dealings with one another.
You are the third partner in our marriage, enhancing our love for each other, strengthening us in times of trial, and supplying us with both anchor and wings, that we may remain steadfast and true while soaring far beyond where we could be alone.
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
