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.
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.
Walk slowly, pausing often.
