A Prayer to mark World Autism Day-April 2

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 heavily 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.

Amen.

(Tim Tucker. 2010)
