Into Your Hands, O God…

A prayer of trust even in dark times.

Man leaning on the wall

Into Your Hands, O God,
This solitude,

Into Your Hands, O God,
This emptiness.

Into Your Hands, O God,
This loneliness,

Into Your Hands—This
This all.

Into Your Hands, O God,
This grief,

Into Your Hands
This sleeping fear.

Into Your Hands, O God—What
What is left,

What is left Of me.

Friday in the week is remembered in prayer as the day of the week that Jesus was crucified. Even in the Season of Easter the Church remembers that there would be no resurrection without crucifixion and death. We remember those who are now suffering in any way, in body, mind, or spirit. We remember that God is ever-present—especially in moments of pain and distress.  We remember with the hope and expectation of resurrection joy. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
