      Gracious God, in these days of uncertainty, be with me as I try to live faithfully. Help me discern, amid all the clamor and noise, what words of truth and faith are being spoken. And when I have discovered what is true and good, help me find the courage to lend whatever strength and hope I have to your cause in the world.
      Help me not give in to fear or apathy – fear of what the future holds for me, or apathy because the events of the day do not directly affect me. When I am tempted to be afraid, help me know that whatever the future holds, you hold me close to you always. And when I am tempted to apathy, remind me how connected I am with my sisters and brothers.
      In days of darkness and despair, lead me toward the light and peace of your presence. For in your presence there is hope, and in your light there is grace and truth.
      I pray in the light of your grace and truth, good God.  Amen.
