In difficult circumstances MAY YOU ENDURE

MAY YOU ENDURE


May you endure in the most difficult of circumstances

May He hold you and steady you on your path

May you find strength in the Lord.

May He always protect you and keep you safe.

May you trust in His guidance

May He lead you in love

May you always find comfort and unexpected kindness

May He bless you in unthought of ways.

May there be a change of heart and mind in all who persecute you.

May His Wisdom rule in their hearts.

Amen

May the Lord give you solace

MAY THE LORD GIVE YOU SOLACE

When you feel crushed and wounded by those who persecute you

May the Lord give you solace and strength.

When the way ahead is fraught with difficulty


May the Lord lead you safely on


When fear justifiably grips you


May you feel the love of the Lord sustaining you.


When pain is intolerable


May the Lord hold and comfort you.


When doubt overwhelms you


May new hope be born in you.


Amen

A blessing for Christmas

 For all the people I have ever known

May they find a blessing today

Whether alive


Or whether they died


May the blessing reach them gently


Whether I liked or disliked them


May the blessing be strong


Whether they liked or disliked me


May they be blessed


For all the people in my life


May they find a blessing today


May it lift them


Comfort them


Touch them


In some mysterious uplifting way


For all those people yet to know


Whether many or few


May the blessing I send out today


Reach them too

Sometimes Prayer is.....


 Sometimes prayer is words

Sometimes prayer is silence


Some times prayer is laughter


Sometimes prayer is song


Other times prayer is tears


Sometimes prayer is dancing


Sometimes prayer is gardening


Sometimes prayer is stillness


Other times prayer is doing the washing up


All times prayer is service


All times service is prayer in action


Always pain can be felt as prayer


Always compassion is prayer


Always life is prayer


Living itself in all aspects of life is prayer


Any action can be prayer


Any thought can be prayer


For we are all one in Spirit

And the Spirit is One in us!


Amen
