A few prayers to get the through the next two days...
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge
him, and he will direct your paths.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Take a deep breath and imagine that you are breathing in God’s Love.
Breathe in God’s love, and breathe out any tension or anxiety.
Breathe in God’s love, and breathe out fear.
Breathe in God’s love, and breathe out negativity.
Breathe in God’s love, and breathe out anger or resentment.
Breathe in God’s love, and breathe out worry.
Breathe in God’s love, and breathe out questions or doubts.
Breathe in God’s love, and breathe out judgmental attitudes.
Breathe in God's love, and breathe out anything in you that is not of God.
Now breathe quietly for a few minutes and imagine that God’s love is flowing through you
to every part of your body. Amen.
Advice from St. Francis de Sales
Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life;
Rather look to them with full hope that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are, will lead you safely through all things.
And when you cannot stand it, God will carry you in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
The same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you today and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering or will give you
unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings. St. Francis de Sales
