A Prayer For Quiet Confidence

Today was Day One of my Parish Discernment Committee's training retreat.

Thank you Eleanor, Charlie, David, Molly, Peter, David, Nat, Eleanor and especially, Ali.  God bless you all. 

I'd marked this prayer for use in closing our time today, but went 'off the page'.  I love this prayer.  So I'll offer it here, now.

O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and in confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee, to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou are God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I sense this will be my daily prayer for this discernment process.  It's Day Two tomorrow, then they go to work on me.

Almighty Father, your Seeking Servant prays for guidance. Amen.
