Keep us Safe


Keep Us Safe

Dear God,
In beautiful places there are unseen hazards,
keep us safe from things falling from the sky.

On a perfect day, dark clouds can arise,
keep us from despair when the storms appear.

In the midst of the happiest of families conflicts arise,
keep us from walking away from lifegiving love.

In the gentlest breeze, air born irritants can form,
help us to be grateful for the small grains that polinate our world and bring beauty, perfume and pearls.

In all of the world keep us safe from the things we cannot see but even more from the things we fabricate to distract us from reaching out in love. Our moments are in your hands. Fashion our hearts with wonder and joy.
Amen
