Prayer for the New Year

Priestly Blessing

May you find the courage to apologize to those you may have hurt with words or deeds.

May you find the courage to apologize to God for mistakes you may have made either intentionally or unintentionally

May you be imbued with the wisdom to understand why you made those mistakes

And may you find the strength to utilize that understanding in order to

Learn how to never repeat those same mistakes again.

The Grief Gratitude Prayer

20161113_153835

Dear God,

Thank you for the time You gave me with <LOVED ONE’S NAME>.

I always knew how lucky I was to have had the opportunity to share my life with <LOVED ONE’S NAME>.

But with him/her residing with You in the heavens, nearly every day something seems to remind me of  <LOVED ONE’S NAME>.

And every time I begin to get that melancholy feeling,

When I turn to You in prayer,

You help the pain go away

And turn the tables on my heart

By opening my eyes to the blessing of each memory, and each moment I had with <LOVED ONE’S NAME>.

Thank You, God, for  every memory,

Every feeling,

Every prayer,

Every turned heart table.

You are the Memory Maker, the Healer, the Creator of all Blessings,

For all these blessings, and every other blessing of which I am unaware,

I thank you now until the end of time.

Chaplain Tamar
