for those in turmoil


from today’s reading in “Common Prayer”

We know, Lord, that the world will never cease to return hatred for love and violence for peace.  Still we pray for the courage and confidence to walk in love and peace for the sake of those who have never known love or peace, for the sake of our own treacherous hearts.  Amen.

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you: wherever He may send you; may He guide you through the wilderness: protect you through the storm; may He bring you home rejoicing: at the wonders He has shown you; may He bring you home rejoicing: once again to our doors.
