In the middle of the night
we call your name, O God,
Thinking You are far away
Hidden in darkness absent from our selves
Fearful and hesitant, we struggle to live our days.
Tonight, we pray for Peace.
May Your Peace, O God, which is in, around, and through us,
Help our eyes to adjust
to the dark light of the night.
You say, if we stay still and acknowledge who You are
Contentment abounds and Peace multiplies.
Trusting You fully,
Depending on You completely,
Walking with You confidently
Makes Your Presence evident,
and Your Peace we find in the eye of the storm.
You are the Source of
All Light, Life, Love and Laughter
But You are also the Source of All
that are held in the dark places of life and beyond.
Help us to trust You, and remember,
You are closer to us than the breath we breathe.
Your Sacred breath, gifted to us before even time began.
Your Light found in darkness is invisible to our physical eyes.
Yet it is present beyond our imagination
Therefore tonight, we Surrender, Gratefully, and Sincerely
Because we are NOT Alone.
You are always with us
From eternity to eternity.
