Prayer of the Month

O God, I come to you for comfort.

You know how lonely I am, O God, keep me from living too much in the past.

Keep me from living too much in memories and too little with hopes.
 
Keep me from being too sorry for myself. Help me to remember that I am going through what many another has gone through.

Help me not to sorrow as those who have no hope.
 
Help me to find comfort in my work, and, because I have gone through sorrow myself, help me to help others who are in trouble.

This I ask for your love’s sake. Amen
