Prayer for Comfort
As you wrap yourself in the Prayer Shawl of Comfort... May the Mother of Mercy, The Father of Faithfulness and the Spirit of Compassion, wrap you in their all-encompassing love this day. May you find comfort... from all that appears too much to bear at this moment; from all that feels as if it might be the breaking point; from all that seems to threaten your peace of heart. May this Prayer Shawl be... a shelter for times of overwhelming grief; a shade in time of sorrow too deep for words; a shield from times of unimaginable loss. May you be comforted... by the presence of those who love and support you; by faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; by the memories of what you hold most dear. May you be strengthened... in your daily comings and goings; in your tentative new beginnings; In your unfolding new memories. May our blessed Mary, Mother of God, send blessings from the Angel of Comfort to be with you and all those you love, now and forever! Amen.
