O Almighty One, our times are in your hand: look with favor upon us, we pray. You are our refuge and our creator: all things came into being at your command. Our worries at times loom before us like mountains, but You lift us up on wings of compassion to survey all our blessings. Set our sights on the horizon, where your love rises and comes to us as dawn breaks from the East.
We put our trust in You and know You are with us, and we are glad and refreshed as in springtime. Let your lovingkindness shine forth in our hearts, and rest upon those whose needs we lift up to You.
