Prayer for Grace


Great Mystery of Life
Acceptance was simple
When the story was kind
Now I am tested
To accept painful loss
With equal grace.
The loss itself
More easily endured
Than the manner
Of taking.
Your mercy and love
to these sweetest of souls
Who ask for nothing
And with enduring dignity
Walk the sorrowful path
Laid before them.
Grant me a measure of their courage
And equal of their Heart
That I might be of service
A true friend, to the end.
