…But Not of the World

Lord:

I have looked at the world and become enraged at the injustice and immorality.  Calm my anger and make me know that Your will is done every minute of every day.

I rail against my fellow man for not doing what I perceive as the “right thing”.  Have me see You in all people, as You have created us all, and remind me that my will is nothing unless it is also Your will.

Allow me to see the beauty of Your Creation, despite the chaos that I may perceive around me.

While I value my brain, allow my heart to open, and know Your Peace.

This world is not my future, and while I may struggle for justice in it, let me  be bathed in Your Mercy.
