A New Year's Prayer from Chaplain Rhonda

Dear Good Shepherd Friends,

Blessings for us all as we enter our New Year. I wanted to share a beautiful prayer adapted from The Book of Common Prayer.

In Memoriam to 2020, and in Hope for 2021
(Adapted from The Book of Common Prayer)

Keep watch, dear Lord,
With those who worked,
And watched,
And wept last year,
And give your angels charge
Over those who sleep eternal.
Continue to tend the sick, Lord Christ,
Give rest to the weary,
Bless the dying,
Soothe the suffering,
Pity the afflicted,
Shield the joyous,
And all for your love’s sake.

With hope in my heart,
Chaplain Rhonda
