INTO THE COMPASSIONATE WOMB of your love, O God,
I bring my deepest needs, my strongest hopes, my greatest fears.
Give me tears for my grief, a voice that I might cry out to you.
Give me words that I might say what is most on my heart.
Give me courage, so that I will always seek the healing you have to give.
Let me always offer my suffering to you,
So that when healing does not come,
Wisdom, justice, and compassion may be its fruit,
A life given to you, Abba God. Amen.
