“Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.” (Psalm 62:5)
Take a few moments to quietly declare this benediction over your life.
In the busyness of this day
grant me a stillness of seeing, O God.
In the conflicting voices of my heart
grant me a calmness of hearing.
Let my seeing and hearing,
my words and my actions
be rooted in a silent certainty of your presence.
Let my passions for life
and the longings for justice that stir within me
be grounded in the experience of your stillness.
Let my life be rooted in the ground of your peace, O God,
let me be rooted in the depths of your peace.
From "Celtic Benediction", J Philip Newell
