Today I bring you a little prayer of gratitude for help in those difficult times, from Sonia Choquette's Uplifting Prayers to Light Your Way.

Holy Mother-Father-God,
Divine Loving Light and Heart of the Universe,

Thank you for lighting my way through the darkness and for keeping my heart open to your love and guidance. I feel your presence in my heart and in my bones, clearing and cleansing the old and making way for the new. I am grateful for your love.

Amen and with infinite gratitude.
