Prayers for seasons of change

I’m in a season of intense change right now, and it often feels like there’s no solid ground beneath my feet. I’m having to develop all-new routines, learn so many new things to get through my days, and am also having to let go of so much. The amount of change brings excitement, grief, stress, and uncertainty from all the unknown all at the same time. It’s disorienting.

I imagine you’ve had your own seasons of change that have brought with them similar feelings of overwhelm and disorientation.

When I’m feeling this way, it’s helpful to remember that no matter how much change I face, God is a rock that I can rest on. God remains unchanging and steady even when nothing else seems stable.

The following prayers for use with an Anglican rosary are full of scriptural reminders (using a mix of translations) that God is our rock. Each set of week beads flows through an adaptation of Psalm 18:2 with a comforting set of reminders of who God is for us.

Cross:May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. (Psalm 19:14)
Amen
Invitatory bead:LORD, you are my strength and my song,
and you have become my salvation.
You are my God, and I will praise you. (adapted from Exodus 15:2)
Amen
Cruciform beads:The LORD lives! Praise to my Rock!
May the God of my salvation be exalted! (Psalm 18:46)
Week bead 1:O LORD, you are my rock.
Week bead 2:You are my fortress.
Week bead 3:You are my deliverer.
Week bead 4:My God, you are my rock, in whom I take refuge.
Week bead 5:You are my shield.
Week bead 6:You are the power that saves me.
Week bead 7:You are my place of safety.
Invitatory bead:LORD, you are my strength and my song,
and you have become my salvation.
You are my God, and I will praise you. (adapted from Exodus 15:2)
Amen
Cross:May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. (Psalm 19:14)
Amen
