O God, I breathe in the silence,

and remember the times

when I cluttered the silence

with unnecessary or harmful words.




O God, I draw near to you in prayer

And remember the times

when I forgot you are with me—

that you are present and moving in this world.




O God, I slow my pace,

And remember the times

when I drowned out people’s cries

with the noise of a busy life.




O God, my heart goes out to others,

But I remember the times

when I let chasms grow between myself 

and the others I encountered.




O God, I seek your forgiveness,

And remember the times

When I stumbled, and fell,

And failed to love as you do.




O God, hear my prayer, now and always,

Let me sense your abiding grace.
