sailOh Wind Whisperer, who calms storms and quiets seas, I await your breath this day. Fill the sail of my heart with faithfulness, that I may slice through the waters of fear that plague these times. Guide my hand as I navigate channels of opportunity to love and serve, pray and hold, empower and discern. Help me to trim the sails of my efforts to seek justice in your name and to be a vessel of healing for the brokenhearted. Lead me through troubled waters of division and anger, that I may be mindful of the perils and power they hold. Steer me in the direction of hope, that, as I traverse the bounty and challenges of this new day and week I may arrive in the safe harbor of your being and take rest. Oh Wind Whisperer, hear my prayer.
