As you settle into prayer today, take time for three deep breaths before you begin.

Heavenly One, as your remembered your daughter Hannah, remember all your children – those who mourn in this holiday season, those who do not have the bare necessities for life, those who live in violence or isolation, those who struggle with sickness or addiction, and all caregivers.  May we remember them in our prayers, in our advocacy and in our actions this season.  In Christ’s name we pray, AMEN.

Close with the Lord’s Prayer, slowly reciting it and meditating on the words of this prayer.
