BEYOND THE BORDERS
A PRAYER
by Thomas P. Bonacci, C.P.

LET US RELEASE ALL THE LOVE IN OUR HEARTS IN ALL THE DIRECTIONS
WHERE IT IS NEEDED

There are always borders some people are not afraid to cross

There are always doors some people are not afraid to open

There are always walls some people are not afraid to tear down

There are always fears some people are not afraid to transcend

There are always hopes some people are not afraid to have

There are always loves some people are not afraid to embrace

There are always people some people are not afraid to respect

There are always dreams some people are not afraid to dream

Help us O Holy One of a thousand names that no one name can capture
to realize the courage within us that is longing to be born in times of trouble

May we be the courage the World needs

so peace might be born
so love might be had
so dreams might come through
so hope might be felt

compassion might flow like a mighty river of justice, compassion,
healing, and tender care.

LET US RELEASE ALL THE LOVE IN OUR HEARTS IN ALL THE DIRECTIONS
WHERE IT IS NEEDED

Amen
