PRAYER: Grey Clouds, by Gilbert of Hoyland

grey clouds gilbert of hoyland

When we see dark grey clouds forming in the sky,
we fear a mighty storm.

In the same way, when we see the darkness of our sin,
we fear the storm of your wrath.

But just as in truth rain brings new life to the Earth,
so you rain down mercy on our sinful souls,
bringing forgiveness and peace.

Be to us always like a mighty storm,
raining down upon us the abundant waters of your mercy.

Amen.
