I want to get in the habit of posting more. Today's post, however, will simply be a prayer. I'm worried about my son right now, and it is really all I can think about tonight. By the way, Lizard Eater wrote yet another great post this weekend, this time about "praying aloud." Some other UU bloggers have begun to respond (and can I just say that I am so glad to have found the Deep River blog tonight?).
Let us pray together:
Today the sun rose and set.
The air was crisp and autumnal.
God in your greatness, we give our thanks.
Today there were lonely hearts.
There was illness and grief.
There was helplessness and powerlessness.
There was pain and cries unheard.
For those suffering, we pray for relief,
and we offer ourselves as the ears for those cries yet unheard.
God in your mercy, hear our prayer.
