18th May – A Prayer for Today

Help us to remember
what, too easily, we forget:
that hope can’t be contained,
that kindness can break down barriers,
that prayer is powerful
(even when we struggled for words).
That life and death are separated only by a breath,
that beyond all this there will be joy
and that love is eternal.

We know all this because of Him
who came to live as one of us.
