A Prayer for My Friend

You came to me with encouragement

this morning.

When I awoke despairing, in turmoil, you

whispered words of reassurance.

You are able.

Your spirit moves, helping me to discern,

to respond.

When I am shut out, you

break through the barriers.

My heart is troubled.

My chest is tight.

I groan. I grieve.

You protect your children.

You shine a light, on this narrow path.

My friend, he needs you now.

Give him the courage to walk toward your light.

Reassure him with each step.

You are his pathway to peace and safety.

Send him hope; send him bravery;

even take my own. It’s my gift to him.

It’s not much. It’s never been much,

but he needs it more than me.
