Psalm 20 A Prayer for You

May you know peace
   and feel the touch of the One we call by many names.
May you have the strength to meet the day’s troubles.
   May all your plans prosper.
May your victories bring goodness to those around you.

To set yourself to these ordinary tasks
   is to take up the holy work of your life
Trust it—
  money and possessions and glory;
these things come and go and
  they will never make us feel secure.
Serenity is the goal.
  It comes from living deeply in the gift of life
doing the work of love, cultivating our gratitude, and
  noting the touch of Spirit in our lives.
