One-Sentence Prayers

Often, we have short 1-2 sentence prayers that we find ourselves praying over and over again. They are simple, but often profound and very centering. What follows are 1-2 sentence prayers that my community shared with me via various social media sites. If you’d like to contribute yours, email me here or comment below.
