Gentle God of Peace and Quiet:
Still the restlessness of our lives.
Set us free from every form of callousness;
strengthen our faltering faith;
visit our lives with courage; and
birth new hope within and among us.
During this hour, stand us up on our feet;
awaken our sleeping sensitivities;
call our hearts and minds to attention;
do some private transactions
with our souls until we are
quieted, empowered, and
made human again.
