Prayer for the month

 

A PRAYER TO START THE DAY

In the busyness of this day

Grant me a stillness of seeing, O God

In the conflicting voices of my heart

Grant me a calmness of hearing

Let my seeing and my hearing

My words and my actions

Be rooted in a silent certainty of your presence

Let my passions for life

And the longings for justice that stir within me

Be grounded in the experience of your stillness

Let my life be rooted in the ground of your peace, O God

Let me be rooted in the depth of your peace
