In all your ways acknowledge God,
and God will make straight your paths.
— Proverbs 3:6
I invite you to use your body when praying this week’s prayer. As you are able, stand on your feet. Take a moment to lean forward and back, side to side, connecting to with senses, feeling gravity pull you to the earth and finding a center space where you feel balance and alignment. Take a few deep breaths, lifting your spine, and in prayer, invite God into your week.
as we journey through this week,
seeking footing for the future,
walk with us.
Guide our feet.
Help us step with caution and awareness,
mindful of those we encounter
and of the imprint we leave.
Prepare our paths.
Inspire us to hope,
to trust and hold lightly
both our burdens and our plans.
Be our backbone.
Steady us with your grace,
meeting our missteps with mercy
and our despair with reassurance.
Ready the way.
Help us move with humility
reminding us that we do not control the future
but that we participate in creating it.
Bless our companions.
May we travel in peace,
accompanied by compassion from friends,
extending kindness to strangers.
Walk with us, being
the Footing for our Future,
the Journey toward our Purpose,
the God of Pilgrim Way.
