Nonviolent Hearts in Violent World

Only God can instill in us nonviolent hearts in a violent world.  And so we pray...


God of noontime fire and light

            who feeds our energy

            who leads us into places of good work just as you fed

            and led your ancient people into a land flowing with milk and honey

We bow before you in this luminous hour of the day

Grateful for morning lessons learned

Eager to bask in truths, opportunities, friendships,

            and lessons of the imminent hours ahead

In this crucible of intense learning

Keep us from clouds of spiritual apathy, O God.

Teach us to claim those extra moments of prayer with you

            and one another

Instill in us nonviolent hearts in this violent world

            That we might be your prophets of peace

            That we might practice becoming peace

In the name of the one who shows us the Way
