One Prayer

Thy will be done.

When I am content, thy will be done.

When I am overwhelmed, thy will be done.

When I stand alone, thy will be done.

When I am understood, thy will be done.

When I am loved, thy will be done.

When I am called to love, thy will be done.

In moments of peace, thy will be done.

In days of violence, thy will be done.

At birth, thy will be done.

At death, thy will be done.

When the light is threatened by darkness, and when the darkness is moved by light, thy will be done.

In the exuberance of growth, and in the weakness of loss, thy will be done.

Now, then, and in the eternal, thy will be done.

When I am confident, thy will be done.

When I am undone, thy will be done.

In the beginning, along the way, at every turn, when the way is lost, when grace sings in notes unwritten and unwritable, thy will be done.

One prayer, loving Center of all.

One prayer.

Thy will be done.
