Lord, I place myself in your presence. After the strain and turmoil of the day
I rest quietly here, as a little boat which has been tossed by the waves,
buffeted by the wind, but now rests secure in a sheltered harbour.
Here all my projects lose their power over me.
My fragmented self is reassembled and I am made whole again.
In your presence, I experience my true worth,
which consists not in doing but in being.
I surrender myself into your hands. I am at peace.
