We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul…
-Hebrews 6:19-

In the tumultuous seas of life, you are there.
In the chaotic oceans of peril, you are there.
In the tranquil lakes of serenity, you are there.
You are there, you hold us in a loving embrace,
as an anchor secures a drifting boat.
But there are times when the waters are too fierce.
There are times when we feel the water rising above our heads.
There are times when we feel the vicious waves crashing down on us.
You are there, you hold us in a loving embrace,
as an anchor secures a drifting boat.
Give us strength.
Give us courage.
Give us a spirit that never fades away into the dark.
May you be our rock, our foundation, our hope.
When we mourn,
When we cry out,
When we ask, “How long, O Lord,”
May we turn to you, lift prayers to you, find solace in you.
Grant us a faith that is secure as a steadfast anchor.
Grant that we may find comfort in you.
Grant that we take action and not lift up vain and empty words.
Lord, make us vessels of thy everlasting peace. Amen.
