Short Friday Morning Prayer

My Dear Father, I'm grateful for a good night's sleep and mindful of those who have worked or worried all night. I'm thankful that Friday is here and that I'll have a day of work today and then a weekend to re-energize, but I'm aware that some do not have jobs and some with work throughout the weekend. I'm grateful for friends and family, but aware that some feel all alone in this world. I'm grateful for the diversity of our Moho community and the support I feel here, but I'm mindful that there are thousands if not ten of thousands of gay Mormons who are suffering in silence and loneliness. Please continue to bless all of us this day, and help us to see opportunities to make a positive difference. And please help us find the courage, energy and creativity to act on those desires. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.


  1. I want to write a prayer of my own, but I would rather not steal your thunder.

  2. Oh I think there's plenty of thunder to go around. :) And speaking of things that light up, I love the notion that one candle is in no way dimmed by lighting other candles. So please do write a prayer and even share it if you care to.
