A Prayer For New York

On a day etched in the minds of people everywhere, a simple prayer I have for the City and those live here:

For the city that never sleeps – take rest.

For the people that never stop – pause.

On the streets that always change – remember what has come before…
…. but embrace the here and now.

For the city that moves on – know your full future potential.
Explore the human heart.  Engage in your culture.  Know who you are.

Helps us learn how to invest in one another.

Out of the mist rises goodness and greatness where people endure …
… and hearts can be healed.

We are becoming…  Lead us there, oh Lord.

Amen.
