Mourning Prayer
(a prayer poem for those grieving the loss of a loved one)


I walk the path of sorrow, with fresh tears in my eyes,
And loss is here beside me every night.
Yet I know that your love endures, with resurrection life
And heaven is so close, your hope shines bright.

And so I bury deep within your Father hearted love,
I let you lead my gaze up to the sky.
I drink the fountain of the dawn to fill my troubled mind,
And watch the birds lift their wings to fly.

I do not walk this path alone but close to you each day.
And as I sleep I keep your hand in mine.
And trust that you can lead me through, each dark and lonely night
'Till heaven calls me home to love divine.



A prayer for a grieving family

O Lord,

Come and presence yourself with this family. Comfort them in their loss, hold them in their sorrow and sustain them through their grief. Enfold them all with your love Lord that they may rest within your arms. Watch over their sleep and take their hands each morning as they face a new day. Bind their hearts as one and bless their relationships. Might they be united in their loss but also blessed with smiles and goodness. Lead this precious family onwards to embrace life together, yet hold on to the promise of heaven.

Amen.

Prayer for Strength when Grieving

(the prayer poem in the film above)


Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel.
My heart is broken and my spirit mourns.
All I know is that Your grace is sufficient.
This day, this hour
Moment by moment
I choose to lean on You,
For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest.
I pour out my grief to You
And praise You that on one glorious day
When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered
We shall walk together again.

Dwell at Christmas

Dwell album cover from Prayerscapes

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for. We (like most creatives) sometimes find it hard to “push” our own work, to believe that our music can Read More


A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down

I think one of our deepest longings as humans is to know that there is a purpose for our lives, that we have a role to play in this world. Thankfully as Christians we can be certain that life isn’t just a random series of events. God the creator of the earth and the heavens Read More


An Ancient Celtic Blessing

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More
