I have walked with a lot of people through loss in my work as a chaplain, and I have my own set of losses. I want to compile a set of my own prayers and blessings for different moments of grief and loss. I wanted to share my blessings and prayers with others, in case it might be helpful to others. I am posting them here as part of a larger project of compiling a book of prayers and blessings that I can give to family and friends. Thank you for taking the time to read my humble words.
In the Light,
Blessing for Someone going through Separation and Divorce
May your steps be guided by the Divine.
As the weight and depth of your pain grow,
may the Spirit give you unknown strength to keep going.
May you let go of the dreams yet to be fulfilled,
and be at peace to uncover a new wild adventure.
May you be blessed to forgive yourself and love yourself,
and let regret and sorrow turn to light and love.
