Bridge Prayer

Winter of 1987: LeFer Bridge

Lord, it is hard sometimes to believe
that you are really present in this world of ours.

But I do believe it, Lord!
Please help me live my life in such a way
that it will be easier for others to recognize you.

When I find doubt,
help me bring a little light.

Where I find discouragement,
let me be a ray of hope in the darkness.

To those who feel estranged and alienated
from you and your Church,
let me be as a bridge.

When I meet those
who have been hurt or misunderstood,
help me leave only the imprint
of your healing love and compassion.

Lord, wherever I go and to whomsoever I meet,
help me be an instrument of your peace.
Amen.
