Serenity in the Bruised World


Have you ever felt that by going within, you are leaving the world behind when it needs you? Today, consider how useful it is to the world to quiet yourself with prayer.


Today let me turn from this bruised world and find the path to peace within.
Let me leave behind deafening sirens of suffering.
Help me remember going inward is not abandoning the pain of hurt people.
It’s knowing that I need to find that airy place—a sunlit walkway—
here I can carry peace back out into the world.
Help me go inside, and to find peace.
Help me take its first steps.


Today take the time to go within. Know that your finding peace helps the world.
