My Prayer for New York

May 29, 2019 — Religious freedom is not theoretical or etheric; it is real and tangible in our lives and our bodies otherwise it does not exist.

Everyday I say a prayer that is dedicated to the battle we have here in New York to maintain health & religious freedoms. Although I hold hope for a specific outcome I have learned that God’s plan is far greater than mine, and I am not in charge. Whatever happens I must hold in my heart that God knows, and I don’t. The daily surrender to this fact is not easy, but it is essential for the sanity, health and well-being of myself and my family. To me this prayer feels as if it is related to the Prayer of St. Francis.
