It is hard to find words for prayers this morning.
When it is hard to find words for prayers, we have breath.
Breathing in our painful awareness, the ache of our heart
Breathing out forgiveness, and blessing and love
Held in divine Presence.
And if we need words for our breath:
On the in breath: Love is stronger
On the out breath: than hate.
