Lord In Your Mercy Hear Our Prayer!

"Father, help us to know where we are and

then help us to be where we are.

Meet us in our weakness, our smallness, our exhaustion,

our insecurity, and our questions.

As we move forward in the midst of where we are,

help us to believe you even though we can't see you.

May we not demand a spectacle, a miracle, or a sign.

May we simply, quietly, be still and know.

Even if we may be busy on the outside,

don't let hurry overwhelm us on the inside.

Remind us to move at a walking pace.

Let your peace rule within us.

Quiet us in the midst of the chaos.

Lord, in your mercy,

hear our prayer.
