Make us whole and send us forth

“Ragged fragments of blessing, of pain. We gather the scattered pieces; hopes we carry; struggles of birthing; places of welcome that bring healing and life. We lay them at the threshold, God; bid you hold them, bless them, use them; ask you tend them, mend them, transform them. Make us whole, and send us forth.” – Abridged prayer from Jan Richardson, “Night Visions: Searching the Shadows of Advent and Christmas.”
