Chaplain Janice Murray
Thank you, Father, for having
created us and given us to each other in the human family. Thank you for being
with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, your
companionship in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow and
for the whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, for health and for grace. May
we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given to us. Thank you
also for the beauty of winter-for snow, icy window panes, ever green trees, warm
coats, sledding, skiing and hot cocoa.
Let us enjoy your creation in all of its glory, this winter and
always. We ask that you watch over our
members in this off season and lead each of us closer to you. We offer this
prayer in the name of Our Lord, Amen.
