WE OFFER OUR GRATITUDE
that you are always present to us, O God,
even when we neglect to be present to you. …
In these sacred moments of stillness,
let us rest our hearts in you. …
Help us to breathe in your care
and breathe out our anxieties.
Help us, O God, to be still,
and know that you are God.
