Prayer for Strength – Pope St. John xxiii

Prayer For Strength – Pope St. John XXIII

Every day I need you, Lord, but today especially,

I need some extra strength to face whatever is to come.

This day, more than any other day,

I need to feel you near me to strengthen my

Courage and to overcome any fear.

By myself I cannot meet the challenge of the hour.

We are frail human creatures and we need a Higher Power to sustain us in all that life may bring.

And so, dear Lord, hold my trembling hand.

Be with me, Lord, this day and stretch out your powerful arm to help me.

May your love be upon me as I place all my hope in you. Amen.

Pope Saint John XXIII.

MARY (A Prayer)

Status

Mary, you stand at the crossroads
Of time and eternity
Intersection of all creation

A desire as old as Eden
Burning in your soul
The yearning of every child

Who has graced the earth
Embodiment of humanity’s Hope
Of Redemption, Restoration

You have held in your heart
The wandering aridity
Of the desert and there

God comes to find you
Lifting you up and keeping
You the apple of His eye

Humanity has found
A response to God in you
From you is deliverance

Brought forth in Christ
In whom we are born and breathe
Our perfect peaceful consummation

Healing for our scars
Amen
