We hold before God …

A prayer linking us together along the Way.

A woman in prayer

We hold before God:
those for Whom life is very difficult;
those who have difficult decisions to make,
and who honestly do not know
What is the right thing to do.

We hold before God:
those who have difficult tasks to do
and to face, and who fear they may fail in them;
those Who have difficult temptations to face,
and who know only too well that they may fall to them,
if they try to meet them alone.

We hold before God:
those Who know that they can be their own worst enemies.

We hold before God:
those Who have difficult people to Work With;
those who have to suffer unjust treatment,
unfair criticism,
unappreciated Work.

We hold before God:
those who are sad because someone they loved has died;
and any Who are disappointed in something for Which they hoped very much.

A prayer by William Barclay in Celtic Daily Prayer, p. 218

We are called to walk with others when the Way is easy and when the Way is difficult. We count on our companions to walk with us when the Way is easy and when the Way is difficult. We need each other. Let us pray for each other, always. ~Fr. Dan

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