Prayer, day 2014: A prayer for the grieving

Holy One, we come to you in silence
seeking rest and comfort:
let us rest here awhile and take strength.

In the midst of mourning,
may we remember laughter.

In the midst of pain,
may we remember beauty.

In all that tries us,
may we remember your sheltering arms
and cool, sweet mercy.

Give respite to the weary, Lord,
and peace to the troubled,
and light to those who search for a path through this day.
