In the darkness and doubt, a prayer — Ana Gobledale, UK

Second Sunday of Easter (Sunday after Easter), Year C

John 20:19-31

Eternal One, as we travel through life’s valleys, in the places of darkness, and despair, we know that you are with us.

Even when life’s doubts assail us, we know that you still abide with us, watching over us.

Strengthen our faith.

Help us remember that you never give us more than we can handle.

Embolden us to share our doubts, to question our absolute truths, our certainties, and to grow ever closer to you.
