I have one to start with tonight that echos many prayers I have prayed over the past year. More uplifting options to come.
A Prayer for Faith, Margaret E Sangster
God, give me back the simple faith
that I so long have clung to,
My simple faith in peace and hope,
in loveliness and light -
Because without this faith of mine,
the rhythms I have sung to
Become as empty as the sky upon a starless night.
God, let me feel that right is right,
that reason dwells with reason,
And let me feel that something grows
whenever there is rain -
And let me sense that splendid truth
that season follows season,
And let me dare to dream
that there is tenderness in pain.
God, give me back my simple faith
because my soul is straying
Away from all the little creeds
that I so long have known;
Oh, answer me while I still have
at least the strength for praying,
For if the prayer dies from my heart
I will be quite alone.
