A prayer for Belonging


Dear Lord,

Let me belong.

Let me belong to you.

Let me belong to a community.

Let me belong to a family.

Let me belong.


In the daylight, let me belong.

At night, let me belong.

During times of illness and strife, let me belong.

During good times, let me belong.

But always, let me belong to you.


For it is your belonging where all belonging begins;

And does not end.


In this I pray. Amen.
