Sounds of the Eternal - Prayer
by J. Philip Newell
At the ending of the day,
in the darkness of the night
I seek an inner assurance of your presence.
My body is still
and my soul is silent
as I listen for the renewing springs of your Spirit
deep in the ground of my being
and in earth's quietness all around me.
Guide me to the wellsprings of health
in the landscape of my soul
and to the hidden reservoirs of strength
in the people and places of my life
that I may be made well this night,
that I may be made well.
