Blessed are you...

We have been asked to pray for all those with a disability, especially for the residents of Peacehaven

Blesses are you..
  • Who see us as people and not just as the disability, FOR YOU assure us that the thing which makes us individuals is not in our peculiar muscles, not in our wounded nervous systems, nor in our difficulties in learning BUT in the God-given self which no infirmity can confine
  • Who take time to listen to difficult speech and are patient with our problems, FOR YOU help us know that if we persevere, we can be understood and you value what we say and do.
  • Who walk with us in public places and ignore stares of strangers, FOR in your companionship we find havens of relaxation.
  • Who never bid us "hurry up", and more blessed are you who do not snatch our tasks from our hands to do them for us, FOR often we need time rather than help.
  • Who stand beside us as we enter new and untried ventures and take risks, FOR our failures will be outweighed by time when we surprise ourselves and you.
  • Who help us with the graciousness of Christ, FOR often we need help we cannot ask for.
  • Who reach us with the Gospel, FOR we are as much in need of being made whole as anyone else.
  • Who let us share our faith and contribute to the Church, FOR YOU help us know that we have much to give as well as to receive.
  • REJOICE AND BE EXCEEDINGLY GLAD, and know that you give us reassurances that could never be spoken in words, FOR YOU deal with us as Christ dealt with all His children.
