Never Let Go Prayer
Oh Jesus, please end my addiction
Oh Jesus, please be with me, at the start of this new day,
Please give me all the strength I need, and guide me on my way.
(I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13)
Please give me all the courage, I’ll need to just say “No”,
When temptation comes around, help me to “Never Let Go”.
(Be on your guard, stand firm in the faith, be courageous, be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13)
For if I always hold Your hand, and never walk away,
I know You’ll keep me close to You, chasing evil thoughts away.
(I will never forsake you or abandon you. Hebrews 13:5)
I thank You for Your promise, to end my addiction now,
I’ll listen for Your voice, as You clearly tell me how.
(For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord,
plans for your welfare, not for you!
Plans to give you a future full of hope. Jeremiah 29:11)
And sometimes if I’m scared and weak, remind me who I am,
I am a precious child of Yours, and I can fight this, yes I can.
(With God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26)
I thank You for Your healing, that comes to me with Love,
I praise You for the Hope, that You send me from above.
(May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13)
And when my world turns dark, and light I cannot find,
Please light my way to find You, and bring me Peace of mind.
(The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. Isaiah 9:1)

For An Addict
On its way through the innocent night,
The moth is ambushed by the light,
Becomes glued to a window
Where a candle burns; its whole self,
Its dreams of flight and all desire
Trapped in one glazed gaze;
Now nothing else can satisfy
But the deadly beauty of flame.
When you lose the feel
For all other belonging
And what is truly near
Becomes distant and ghostly,
And you are visited
And claimed by a simplicity
Sinister in its singularity,
No longer yourself, your mind
And will owned and steered
From elsewhere now,
You would sacrifice anything
To dance once more to the haunted
Music with your fatal beloved
Who owns the eyes of your heart.
These words of blessing cannot
Reach, even as echoes,
To the shore of where you are,
Yet may they work without you
To soften some slight line through
To the white cave where
Your soul is captive.
May some glimmer
Of outside light reach your eyes
To help you recognize how
You have fallen for a vampire.
May you crash hard and soon
Onto real ground again
Where this fundamentalist
Shell might start to crack
For you to hear
Again your own echo.
That your lost lonesome heart
Might learn to cry out
For the true intimacy
Of love that waits
To take you home
To where you are known
And seen and where
Your life is treasured
Beyond every frontier
Of despair you have crossed.
May you listen to your longing to be free.
May the frames of your belonging
be generous enough for your dreams.
May you arise each day with a voice of blessing
whispering in your heart.
May you find a harmony between your soul and your life.
May the sanctuary of your soul never become haunted.
May you know the eternal longing that lives at the heart of time.
May there be kindness in your gaze when you look within.
May you never place walls between the light and yourself.
May you allow the wild beauty of the invisible world to gather you,
mind you, and embrace you in belonging.
For the Parents of One
Who has committed a crime
No one else can see beauty
In his darkened life now.
His image is closed
Like a shadow.
When people look at him,
He has become the mirror
Of the damage he has done.
But he is yours;
and you have different eyes
That hold his yesterdays
In pictures no one else remembers:
Waiting for him to be born,
Not knowing who he would be,
The moments of his childhood,
First steps, first words,
Smiles and cries,
And all the big thresholds
Of his journey since...
He is yours in a way
No words could ever tell;
And you can see through
The stranger this deed has made him
And still find the countenance of your son.
Despite all the disappointment and shame,
May you find your belonging with him
A kind place, where your spirit will find rest.
May new words come alive between you
To build small bridges of understanding.
May that serenity lead you beyond guilt and blame
To find that bright field of the heart
Where he can came to feel your love
Until it heals whatever darkness drove him
and he can see what it is he has done
And seek forgiveness and bring healing;
May this dark door open a path
That brightens constantly with new promise.
Awaken to the mystery of being here
and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence.
Have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
Receive encouragement when new frontiers beckon.
Respond to the call of your gift and the courage to follow its path.
Let the flame of anger free you of all falsity.
May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame.
May anxiety never linger about you.
May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul.
Take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.
Be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift
woven around the heart of wonder.
To Come Home to Yourself
May all that is unforgiven in you
May your fears yield
Their deepest tranquilities.
May all that is unlived in you
Blossom into a future
Graced with love.

A PRAYER FOR HEALING
Lord Jesus, you once came among us to bring wholeness and holiness to all people. We ask you now to bring your healing presence to us in a powerful way. As your healing touch made lepers whole, touch those who are ill or injured and restore them to good health.
As you drove out demons, deliver us from depression, addiction and emotional problems. As you blessed family life at Cana, bless our families with peace and harmony. Forgive us our sins and help us to forgive those who have hurt us.
Grant us health in mind, body and soul – so that we might become all that you are calling us to be. Use us as effective instruments of your peace, your love and your healing. We ask this of you, Jesus, our Lord, forever and ever.

Security under God’s Protection
1. You who dwell in the shelter of the
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
2. Say to the Lord, “My refuge and fortress,
my God in whom I trust.”
3. God will rescue you from the fowler’s snare,
from the destroying plague,
4. Will shelter you with pinions
spread wings that you may take refuge;
God’s faithfulness is a protecting shield.
5. You shall not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6. Nor the pestilence that roams in darkness,
nor the plague that ravages at noon.
7. Though a thousand fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
near you it shall not come.
8. You need simply watch;
The punishment of the wicked you will see.
9. You have the Lord for your refuge;
You have made the Most High your stronghold.
10. No evil shall befall you,
no affliction come near your tent.
11. For God commands the angels
to guard you in all your ways.
12. With their hands they shall support you,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13. You shall tread upon the asp and the viper,
trample the lion and the dragon.
14. Whoever clings to me I will deliver;
Whoever knows my name I will set on high.
15. All who call upon me I will answer;
I will be with them in distress;
I will deliver them and give them honor.
16. With length of days I will satisfy them and
show them my saving power.
