A Prayer by George Dawson

Almighty God,

show us kindness

when we get bothered by what has happened

and lose faith and hope and courage.

So have mercy on us and help us that we,

sustained by confident faith that you forgive,

may go on in the life ahead of us

to keep your ways,

to rejoice in your blessings,

and to hope in the life to come.

Grant to all of us, whatever happens,

to remember that everything remains

under your will and guidance and care,

so that when things seem darkest,

we will see you and thereby have

courage to go forward,

faith to endure,

patience to keep on,

and hopefulness to hold out,

even to the end. Amen.

(Adapted from Timothy Jones’ Workday Prayers, 187)
