Prayer 236

garden furniture and rainbow

Loving Father,

I stepped outside and there was
   a rainbow,
   bright against a dark sky,
A miracle of light and colour.
And my heart leapt within me,
Rising to the light of hope.
And in the midst of the joy
   granted to me I recalled all those
   who contemplate suicide.
Father, may your light break
   through their darkness
So they may glimpse the rainbow,
   step back from the abyss,
   and step towards your light,
  by which they may see the gifts
   you grant them
And come to find that their hearts
   are lifted to your rainbow.
