Gracious Father

Franciscan Flowers

Gracious Father of hope
Breathe in me Your Holy Breath.

-Your strengthening energy
-Your loving gift to cope
-Your patient waiting
-Your will to be known
-Your love to spread
-Your Spirit to light the way
-Your indwelling Presence
-Your encompassing love.

Gracious Father of Hope
Breathe in me Your Holy Breath
Your Spirit’s Holy Breath.

-To relax and unbind
-To set free and surrender
-To deepen a relationship with You
-To always speak in Your Name
-To love with Your love
-To hear with your ears
-To see with Your eyes.

Gracious Father of forgiveness
Breathe in me Your Holy Breath.

-To forgive with Your forgiveness
-To reach out with Your Touch
-To heal with Your healing
-To behold Your belovedness
-To follow Your beckoning calls
-To go where You lead
-To embrace Your Holy Will
-To be drawn deeper into Your Heart.

Sr. La Donna M. Pinkelman, OSF
