Lord, lead me to a meditation on life eternal. The fulfillment I seek can never be found amid the fragments of earthly existence . . . I need meditation to keep my passing days in mortal perspective – to hear, in worldly sounds, your voice most pure. Lord, in quiet meditation I wait upon your word. I meet you to whom in silence I shall one day return. Without you, I accomplish nothing. Only when your spirit guides me can I be your faithful servant.
