prayers for this day and other days
if you haven't read through this book yet, I urge you to pick one up. I have had my copy for about 7 years, and I am always finding lovely things in between its pages.
here is a portion of one prayer that I have been praying for a relationship I am currently in.
Help Me to Believe in Beginnings
God of history and of my heart,
so much has happened to me during these whirlwind days:
I've known death and birth;
I've been brave and scared;
I've hurt, I've helped;
I've been honest, I've lied;
I've destroyed, I've created;
I've been with people, I've been lonely;
I've been loyal, I've betrayed;
I've decided, I've waffled;
I've laughed and I've cried.
You know my frail heart and my frayed history -
and now another day begins.
O God, help me to believe in beginnings
and in my beginning again,
no matter how often I've failed before.
