a prayer for strength

Deborah Beach Giordano
© August 9, 2010

Gracious God of hope and healing,
Bringer of peace,
Source of all understanding,
let me feel Your comforting Presence.
Soothe my care-worn soul
with Your tender love;
refresh my spirit
in the waters of Life and Beauty;
open my eyes
to the goodness that surrounds me,
open my ears
to the music of bird songs and cricket chirps,
give me the faith
to believe where I have not seen,
the courage to be
who I am, where I am,
the wisdom to love
life as it is,
and the joy
of knowing You
now
and in all the days to come.
Amen.
