Several weeks ago, a friend shared the following prayer to help Chris and I walk through this period of unknown for our future. It brings me great comfort in the moments I am flipping out about the future.
Holy Spirit, strengthen me ….(what do we need strength for?)
Holy Spirit, guide me…. (What do we need guidance on?
Holy Spirit, comfort me…(What do we need comfort in?)
Holy Spirit, enlighten me…(What do we seek enlightenment on?)
Praying with these four simple phrases has brought me strength, comfort, guidance, and enlightenment. While the “big answer” still has not come, praying with this has helped me see prayers answered in small pieces.
I offer this prayer to you and to our loved ones who are experiencing transition.
