An Amish Prayer...
O beloved Comforter of despondent hearts, O worthy Guest of faithful souls, O sweet Refresher and sole Sustainer in our infirmities, draw near and make Thy abode in us forever.
Strengthen us when we are fainthearted, purify that which is filthy, heal that which is wounded, make straight that which is twisted, renew our spirit when we are unconcerned, reclaim and bring back to the right path that which is astray and lost.
Thou holiest Light, let the brightness of thy grace shine deep into the hearts of Thy faithful ones, who this day commit anew their souls to Thy keeping.
Claim our hearts as Thine own and fill them with heavenly comfort and joy, so that we may be cheerful and satisfied under all circumstances. As children of God, help us to overcome the world. Praise be to Thee, O Holy Spirit and God the Father and the Son in eternity. Amen.
May all who read be comforted.
