Prayer for a Cloudy Day

by P. Braithwaite

Today I pray for the ties that bind me– may they support suspend us if we fall; keep us stable when we waiver, loosen when it is time to move and tighten when we are afraid we’ve come undone…

I pray for forgiveness: of myself, for myself and from myself into the hearts of others. We are all worthy and wholly loveable. We are capable of miracles, and we are capable of misconduct. This is not a flaw; it is a truth. I pray for the ability to love myself and others in the starkness of our humanity. I pray to receive the same treatment in return.

May we all see love, be love and cultivate love in ourselves and each other. Even on days, like today, when its hard. This is my prayer for today.

And so it is.
