Embracing Change

O God,

I am tired and confused.

Help me be still,

Help me be quiet and listen,

Help me not be overwhelmed by what must be done.

Give me peace as I start anew.

Help me rest assured in your presence,

Help me say, “Yes, I can”,

Help me trust you and myself.

O God,

Bestower of blessings and giver of grace,

embrace me with peace and love,

and embrace all who are dear to me,

for your Word heralds harmony and calls us to communion.

I will hold the tension,

and rest in the holy silence,

secure with your mercy and protection,

I wholeheartedly say, “Here I am”.

O God,

Give me the patience to stay the course,

give me the courage to strive forward,

give me the strength to get up after I stumble.

Show me the Way.

Indeed it is

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
