Release and Rest, a Prayer for the Stressed

swan sheltering chick under wings

For yourself…
Merciful God,
our Peace and our Hope
Shelter me, your beloved, beneath your healing wings
Raise me to the safety of your breast
so I may hear your heart
Hold me
Hide me
Help me to release and rest
release and rest
release and rest

Offered for another…
Merciful God,
our Peace and our Hope
Shelter your beloved NAME beneath your healing wings
Raise NAME to the safety of your breast
so she may hear your heart
Hold her
Hide her
Help her to release and rest
release and rest
release and rest
