walking with grief

Excerpts from some words by George MacDonald in Celtic Daily Prayer, (Walking with grief, p. 225-226).

Do not hurry
As you walk with grief
It does not help the journey

Walk slowly
Pausing often
Do not hurry
As you walk with grief

Be gentle with the other
Who walks with grief
If it is you
Be gentle with yourself
Swiftly forgive
Walk slowly
Pausing often

Take time, be gentle
as you walk with grief

I am praying this for so many of my friends today: Janette, Nick, Jenn, Amanda, Pernell, Peter, Andrew, Margie, Lisa

If you would like to pray this prayer for any of your friends, you might like to add their names (I suggest first names only) in the comments …

  3. I pray for

    Vanessa and
    and myself.

    For all the comments and accusations made against me that have hurt so much I forgive. I have not lied and will continue not to do so even though others would have me do this to protect them.

  5. For Duggan and Nancy,
    Dejuan and Malena,
    My wife, Deborah,
    And also for myself.

    Also, I acknowledge the need to forgive. I am beginning with the intention to forgive. May Christ meet me in that intention and give me the strength and compassion to do so. For to do so is to have the heart of Christ as well as his mind.

    Thanks, Steve for the prayer opportunity.

  9. I pray for Donna the young woman who rang a couple of months ago.
    I pray she heals and will finally do the honest and brave thing.
    Honesty is the only way to heal and prevent others from being in pain.
