Prayer when Mourning

As I sing this dirge
may its notes be transfigured, transmuted, transposed,
the dissonance of fear and anger
resolving into harmonic chords of grace and beauty.
In your mercy let the melody of my life
echo the voice of your unending song.

What a beautiful prayer...did you write it Rebecca...I love the third line...'resolving into harmonic chords of grace and beauty'...I can almost feel the movement from one state of mind to another.

Praying that God grants you your prayer. (((HUGS)))

Hi Anita, yes, I did write it. Unless otherwise cited, I write all the prayers posted here. Glad this one meant something to you too!
