O Creator, you bring us peace that passes understanding in the midst of chaos. You bring us strength in the midst of chaos. We ask you to shower us with double portions of peace and strength. Let us not forget that those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They will rise up on eagle’s wings.
And, when we are feeling low, remind us the Lord’s eye is on the sparrow—and that eye watches over us. When dangers, toils and snares come, we know you’ll make a way. As turmoil swirls in our governments around the globe, in our streets and, maybe even in our homes, we know you’ll make a way.
And, we know you’ll give us joy—joy that makes us dance and sing. Sing hosanna in the highest. Shower us with joy in the midst of pain and turmoil. Shower us with joy in the midst of the mundane. Make your presence known always. We lift thanks and praise to you, O Lord, for your faithfulness.
