Dear Heavenly Father, You who have taught us in every circumstance you are with us. Be with us now more than ever. You have taught us to be quiet. Help us now to be more quiet so we may listen to you more fully and more completely. You who have taught us to be confident, Help us now to be more confident in you and to trust you more than ever. You who have taught us to be strong, In humility and in contrition, help us to be stronger in you. You who have taught us to be vigilant, Help us now to be more vigilant than ever so we may see you coming upon the clouds. You, who have taught us to be uplifted in you, by the might of your hand and Spirit, lift us up today. We beseech thee to give us more fully your presence and your help when our confidence runs low. Show us, in whatever way you will it, that we can be confident in you and confident in your love for us. Help us to be still and know your love, grace, and compassion. Bring us confident peace in the midst of turmoil. Bring us a confident new spirit of determination and fortitude. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen and Amen.
