Words from the past that ring true today:

When darkness invades our world, give us light.
When despair numbs our souls, give us hope.
When we stumble and fall, lift us up.
When doubts assail us, give us faith.
When nothing seems sure, give us trust.
When ideals fade, give us vision.
When we lose our way, be our guide!
That we may find serenity in Your presence,
And purpose in doing Your will.

-John D. Rayner (Jewish Rabbi. Escaped Germany in 1939 on one of the last Kindertransports. Lost both parents in the Holocaust. Served as co-chairman of the London Society of Jews and Christians. Died September 2005.)
