God of comfort, wonder and joy,
In the midst of our chaotic lives, you send moments of peace. In the graciousness of a friend or the quiet stillness of a holy evening spent watching the stars, you overwhelm us with your love. When we least expect it, angels bear in your presence and force us to look around and see how blessed we are. May these moments transform us from hurried souls to patient disciples, ready to serve but willing to listen and discern. May courage fill our hearts and empower us to love and serve in unique ways.
