Calm

O God,

It’s calm in the eye of a hurricane.

As life swirls and storms around us this week,

give us a calm center.

Help us be still in the heart of our being.

Let our calmness and stillness be
based in our ever-growing experience
of your love and trust in your grace.

Let our calm center be a base from
which we carry out actions that
show and share your love and grace.

Amen.
