When words fail me
and I don’t know what to make of things,
help me to be really silent,
and wait in trust for the answers.
Do not face us, O living God,
with the future of a world without justice,
or a future without mercy;
in your mercy,
and in your justice,
remember your overflowing mercy in Jesus Christ.
show us where we can help
with whatever gift each of us has received
and give us the strength and energy
and time to put our faith into action.
