Within the centering embrace of our shared worship,
Gather us, O God.
Over and above the cacophony of cleaving impulses,
partisanship, and parochialism into which humanity
can and all too easily sink,
Inspire a separate and soothing peace to rise and to calm us; a peace not of this world, but of the heavenly realm beyond, which forever seeks to enter in.
In the teeming diversity of our religions, race, ethnicities, genders, orientations, languages, and nationalities,
and a blended and beauteous tapestry, rather than disparate threads.
or when personal or global circumstances may warrant worry more reflexively than hope,
for all that is good,
all that is right,
all that is loving.
that you, O God, are:
ever within us.
