Daily Prayer

Help me silence the relentless roar
of newscasters and fanatics.
So much of what we hear each day
seeks to separate us from one another.
I watch the news because I want to know
what is going on in the world.
What I see and hear is hate.

Help me look into the faces around me
and see the divine spark You have given
each and every one of us.
Help me, and women like me,
who come to You seeking comfort,
singing praise, bring
Your peace and love into the world.
