PRAYER TECHNIQUE: Prayer of Relinquishment Gracious Jesus, it is easier for me to approach you with my mind than with my tears. I do not know how to pray from the depths of my heart or even how to get in touch with that part of me. I know I need to learn to pray better, yet when I am honest, I know that I often do not even want to pray at all. I am distracted! I am self-centered! Still, I come to you just as I am. I am sorry for my many rejections of your love. Please forgive me when I insist on my way instead of yours. I repent of my callous and insensitive ways. Break my stony heart with the things that break your heart. I am yours. For your sake and in your name I pray. Amen.

We carry them in special places of honor within ourselves. We invite you to come and join our group to share with others these special memories and have them honored and celebrated by a group of fellow-travelers of life.
