Another Sharp Prayer from St. Augie!

October 6th, 2015 · No Comments · Sharp Prayers

A Prayer for Strength and Courage
Attributed to St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo

God of life,
there are days when the burdens we carry
rub our shoulders raw and weigh us down;
there are days when the road seems dreary and endless,
the skies grey and threatening;
there are days when our lives have no music in them,
when our hearts are lonely,
and our souls have lost their courage.

God of life,
flood our path with light,
turn our eyes to where the skies are full of promise;
tune our hearts to brave music;
give us the sense of comradeship
with heroes and saints of every age;
and so quicken our spirits
that we may be able to encourage
the souls of all who journey with us
on the road of life,
to your honor and glory.

Amen.
