The times are changing, changing quickly and there is so much unknown. I do feel that a new world is dawning, one that is challenging us to wake up. These times are exciting.
And, these times can be unsettling. Prayer is a tool to help us get centered any time, but perhaps even more so during these extreme times of change.
The following prayer is based on one by Saint Ignatius of Loyola that is apropos for when one might be feeling a bit out of sorts – like I am feeling today. It is soothing to my soul.
When all is darkness and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
Give us the sense of Your presence, Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust in Your protecting love and strengthening power,
So that nothing may frighten or worry us,
For, living close to You,
We shall see Your hand, Your purpose, Your will through all things.
May I keep close to Spirit through these changing, exciting times.
