In a dangerous world it is tempting to pray for safety. Such prayers may bring comfort, but are also perhaps misplaced. Let us pray that what we do will cause no harm, either directly or indirectly. Let us pray that our actions will tip the scales of justice and compassion. Let us pray for comfort, knowing that loving action brings loving response. Our best hope for safety is to approach each day with tenderness, mindfulness, and generosity of spirit. For the security we can provide for each other, we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
