Our Current Prayer

Prayer for Comfort

Welcome Holy Spirit,
In the silence of a still night’s fearful thought you come.
Comfort in the sleepless worries.
Gentle in the rising doubts.
Forgiving all our handmade hurts.
Patient in our pointless hurry.
Counseling as the waves come crashing,
“Be still and know that I am God.”
Wonderful counselor, comforter, God with us.
You will never abandon us.
You will always be with us.
Your promises are sure.
Help us to give like you, forgive like you, live for you.
