A Prayer for Thursday, October 31, 2013

Intersections (Part 4)

O God,

Today we will likely find ourselves living in the midst of turmoil; because your Spirit and grace are in us, we have the opportunity to experience your peace in such situations and to bring your peace to bear on them.

We do not expect to be immune from the turmoil and we do not ask you to help us escape from it; to do so would be to ask you to cause us to be something other than human and to live somewhere other than the real world.

But we do thank you that where we meet turmoil we bring your peace along with us; we thank you that no matter what threatens to break us apart, we always have your peace that holds us together.

May your peace in us inspire others to seek and to know your peace so that together, we can help keep it together.
