May our aching hearts find healing in your presence.
May we rise against the hurt and the destruction,
Which pervades our society today,
So that we can reach for the silver linings hiding in dark clouds.
Grant our minds a sublime state of being,
Where negative spirits of hatred, of distrust,
of aggression and its virulent forces cannot find root.
Let your peace that brings tranquility reign in our lives,
As you cast your shadow of protection over us.
May those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High God
Abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
