Go, go if you want,
Go, on your own,
Go when you’re ready,
Brave girl you are smart,
Go when your heart is strong and is steady.
God of Journeys,
I want to be a woman who goes, who is smart, who is strong, who is steady,
But I can’t be that woman without you.
Help me to be ready to go,
To go where you want me to be.
As I go on my own,
Remind that you have promised to be with me always and everywhere.
Make me wise in all situations,
Able to use my intelligence to make good decisions.
Make my heart able to endure through transitions and grief,
Filled with strength that only comes from the Holy Spirit.
Day by day steady my heart,
Remind me that you are the same yesterday, today, and forever.
May I be filled with your grace and peace,
Going out to love and serve the Lord.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
