I pray you as I write
I pray you peace and love
I pray you faith in the power of the Holy Spirit to protect those you love
I pray you understanding of the journey
I pray you feel my heart for you and those you love
I pray the Holy Spirit who first came as a dove stay with you today lifting your heart and spirit and those of the ones you love
I pray you love like a river
I pray you the peace that passeth understanding
I pray the hard, calloused hands of the Carpenter or Laborer stay on you and the ones you love
I pray you and the ones you love can always feel His Promise to never leave us alone
I pray you and the ones you love Jehovah’s tender mercies and grace freely given
I pray you and the ones you love all the blessings of the Creator of the universe
I pray the ones you love humility and serenity and sweetness of the soul
I pray those you love Divine Understanding of how to be and how to carry themselves
I pray you and those you love to ask the Carpenter every morning how He would walk that day and be that day
I pray joy for you and those you love, joy in a meal, joy in helping others suffering more, joy in being outside, joy in a deeper understanding because of the gift of time to read more deeply
I pray the ones you love the gift of self understanding
I pray you and those you love the ability to love yourself as God loves you
I pray Almighty and All-Loving God hear and answer this sinner’s prayer that came from the deepest place in his heart and soul.
