PRAYERS

The prayers you find here can only be a sampling of all the many beautiful prayers that we have shared and spoken during our workshops. I hope they will help you feel close to God as you pray, and remind you of God's deep love for you and for all of creation. God is with us.

Opening Prayer 

- Minnie Louise Haskins, commonly called the St. Thérèse Prayer

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be confident knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

 

Prayer for Courage 

- from Daily Prayer with the Corrymeela Community 

Courage comes from the heart 

and we are always welcomed by God, 

the Heart of all being. 

 

We bear witness to our faith, 

knowing that we are called 

to live lives of courage, love and reconciliation 

in the ordinary and extraordinary 

moments of each day. 

 

We bear witness, too, to our failures 

and our complicity in the fractures of our world. 

 

May we be courageous today. 

May we learn today. 

May we love today.  

Amen.
