A prayer for strength: Life’s journey is often arduous – hills to climb, roads to walk, streams to ford. These hills, roads, and streams may be literal, or they may be contours of our inner-landscape. Regardless, strength, endurance, fortitude are all required as we navigate these highways and byways. May we care for our bodies, that we might grow strong muscle for exploring the paths of the world. May we care for our spiritual selves, that we might promote the soulful sinew required to explore the passages of the sublime. The joy is in the journey, our bliss to simply explore. For robustness of both the body and the soul, we give special thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
