In challenging times
may we find insight and inspiration.
In difficult times
may we find strength and grace.
In disturbing times
may we be granted the courage
to not despair and to do
what needs to be done.
In all seasons and even beyond reason
may we tap into a wellspring of hope
from which our every good word and
every worthy action can be sourced.
In tumultuous times
may we be sparked by possibility.
In unsettling times
may we still rely on love.
In dark and cloudy times
may we be touched by awe and wonder
and in skeptical and cynical times
may we remain open to miracles.
In confusing times
may we still find happiness
and the reprieve of laughter
and the blessing within each breath.
may kindness and fairness and goodness
be our guiding lights
and gratitude our most fervent prayer.
