Compassionate, creating One
You know our grief and share our tears
You hold in your heart the
Of all our hearts
Grace us with the wisdom to gently hold ourselves
and others who grieve.
Grace us with the courage to acknowledge our losses
and wrestle honestly with their impact.
Grace us with the patience and self-compassion to heal
when our hearts have been wounded.
Grace the rivers of our tears as they ebb and flow
Let them carry your healing presence
Let them move upon the landscapes of our lives
Let them carve within each of us space for
More profound joy
Maker of all waters, move within us
As we seek to trust the ways of your movement in our lives
And follow the ways of Christ
The water of life. Amen.
