Hi everyone,

Tim and I just returned from a weekend Northern CA UB retreat, which
is held annually in Sonoma County.  The theme for the retreat this
year was on developing our faith.  This is a prayer that Olfana gave
me at the retreat that we used in our worship service.

Love,  Susan

Olfana's Prayer on "Developing Our Faith"

Father, We ask you to help us develop our faith,

In the dark hours of the night
When quavering fears crowd out thoughts.

In the silent ponderings of our minds
As we attempt to solve the challenges we face.

In those tense moments when we worry
We will "miss the mark" in all we aspire to accomplish.

Let faith fill our hearts and minds
In all these moments, Father.
As a golden, healing balm,
Which soothes all fears,
Enlightens all ponderings,
Relaxes all tensions,
And erases all worries.

This faith, Dear Father, is also the bond we forge
Between our hearts and Your Merciful Love
Which You send out to us
In all the moments of our lives.

Let our faith help us to feel Your Love,
Help us to trust in Your Protection and Care,
Help us to abide in our path back to You.
And help us to sense joy in the possibilities
Of our eternal tomorrows.

May our faith build and grow
In each moment we seek to discover it.   Amen.
