Prayer for Dodie

BY: LoriS

A Prayer for Dodie
It’s been years since we prayed together,
years we could have grown apart
but somehow didn’t.
I see Your hand in this.
The same hand that formed us,
loud and raucous,
into a class.
No one could shut us up, then or now.
It is time to raise our voices again.
We pray for one of our own.
We visualize her cancer-free.
We project our future — old ladies,
still talking about Rosary Day
and Red and Gold, together.
It wouldn’t be us without her.
Divine Presence,
bless our classmate,
our friend, our sister.
May our voices have power
as they did of old,
not to win a Pep Rally,
but to make real our hopes:
Heal her.
Heal her

Today's Spiritual Quote
The testimony of a good conscience will make the comforts of heaven descend upon a man's weary head like refreshing dew or shower upon a parched land. It will give him lively earnests and secret anticipations of approaching joy; it will bid his soul go out of the body undauntedly, and lift up his head with confidence before saints and angels. end quote
