Shalom


Help me now to pray – even without words.

Help me to pray with my breathing

To breathe in of your love and your peace

To breathe out of my pain and sadness

To breathe in of your cleansing and forgiveness

To breathe out of my guilt and impurity.

So in my breathing may my body and soul be at one with you

In harmony with you

At ease with you.

May I be still and know that you are God.

May I be still and know that you are the Lord who brings healing.

Amen.
