Courage for Life

God, make me brave for life:
oh, braver than this.
Let me straighten after pain,
as a tree straightens after the rain,
Shining and lovely again.
God, make me brave for life;

much braver than this.
As the blown grass lifts,
let me rise
From sorrow with quiet eyes,
knowing Thy way is wise.
God, make me brave, life brings
such blinding things.
Help me to keep my sight;
help me to see aright
that out of dark comes light.

Only Trust

All shall
be well,
and all shall
be well,
and all manner
of things
shall be well.

—Julian of Norwich, Fourteenth Century

Wish Prayer

Whatever prayer means to you personally,
It is my prayer that you will find what reflect your cries,
Destroy your obstacles; transform your fires into music,
Lead you in times of strife, compel you to action,
And most of all, give you hope.

—Reverend Maggie Oman Shannon
