Wednesday Prayer

Since we will have a new graduate in our lives on Sunday and so will many other families in the next few weeks, I thought that this was a good find:


A Prayer for Graduates

Loving God, we pray for the wisdom to discern your call in our lives.
Hear our prayer, O God.

We pray for the wisdom to make healthy choices in the face of endless and confusing options.
Hear our prayer, O God.

We pray for the wisdom to redefine our relationships with our parents and our friends as our lives change.
Hear our prayer, O God.

We pray for the grace to form new relationships with new friends as we move from this place.
Hear our prayer, O God.

We pray for the courage to swim against the current of society as we seek to follow where you lead.
Hear our prayer, God.

We pray with the courage to take a stand with you for justice and peace in this world in this time.
Hear our prayer, O God.

And I would appreciate prayers for our family as we watch our daughter take this big step in the absence of the brother she loves so much.

Praying, Gannet.

Please pray for Cecilia (who blogs at Closeted Pastor) as she risks her pastoral employment by coming out to her congregation and judicatory this week.

Praying for all in the Gannet family, and for Cecilia and those who love her.
