As the bombing of Syria begins, I imagine many of us have woken with a heavy heart and sense of foreboding.
Amazingly, these words were in my morning prayers. Let’s pray them together:
Come O Hope-Bringer,
bless me with patience when the world still weeps.
Bless me with courage to never give up believing in peace.
Bless me with work that I may do my part.
Bless me with prayer as I light my candle against the darkness.
Love come down to my little day this morning.
