In the the tensions and crises of life,
we experience eyes in the storm.
We recognise that in the moments of quiet,
rest is sometimes disturbed
by memories and fears.
In the closest silences,
we long for your voice.
In the heartbeat of anticipation,
faith holds us.
Stir new creation in our lives.
Have mercy on us,
in both the thunder and the quiet.
When the waves are pounding
grant us inner strength and calm.
Bless us with your peace
for the world.
