A Prayer

A prayer of the Northumbria community

Do not hurry as you walk with grief;
It does not help the journey.
Walk slowly, pausing often:
Do not hurry, as you walk with grief.
Be not disturbed
By memories that come unbidden.
Swiftly forgive;
And let Christ speak for you
Unspoken words; unfinished conversations
Will be resolved in him.
Be not disturbed.
Be gentle with the one who walks with grief.
If it is you, be gentle with yourself.
Swiftly forgive;
Walk slowly, pausing often.
