A Prayer of St. Francis for Autism by Tim Tucker
A Prayer of St. Francis for Autism by Tim Tucker
Lord, let thy peace fill me up until I overflow; that where people cannot speak, I may be their advocate; that where anyone is rejected, I may extend my arms in welcome;
that where parents are heavy burdened, I may offer a word of comfort; that where our children struggle, I may lift them up and cheer;
that where some see disability, I may reveal to them extraordinary gifts; that where others judge, I may share with them my deep gladness; and that where any are overlooked, I may help the lights of all to shine.
O Giver of These Gifts, grant that I may not so much seek to be reassured as to reassure; to be praised, as to praise; to be accepted, as to accept;
for it is in all our uncertainty that we are inspired to hope; it is in great challenges that we discover our greatest joys, and it is in our community of wanderers that we find the way home.
