In a world rocked by devastation,
by earthquakes and tsunamis,
by starvation and cruelty,
I am only one person.
It is so easy to claim I can do nothing,
so easy to be intimidated
by the disasters before me.
Please soften my heart again.
Remind me of my brothers and sisters,
of all your servants, standing together,
each of us filling just one belly,
buying just one school book,
building just one house.
Grant me a willing heart,
that I may join your army of hope,
trusting that the work of Your hands
will make significant the work of mine.
