Senate Prayer for Personal Peace

Dear God, please hear these words.
Dear God,
Calm my rapid heart,
Driven by desire for things
I should not have
For they do not mean love.

Dear God,
Quiet my rattling brain;
Thoughts drive plans
I should let go
For they do not mean wisdom.

Dear God,

Ease my weary body,
Burdened with injuries
Of intemperate youth,
For this corpse cannot touch eternity.

Dear God,

Hush my childish words,
They are mere animal sounds
Snarls to dominate or scare,
For such effort lies far from the truth.

Only through the peace of knowing you
Can the joy of this world shine through.
