Listening for Peace.
Mostly itís good to listen.
To listen to creation with all its rhythms of decay and death,
And hidden mysterious new life that springs forth.
The river is a mirror of lifeís journey.
Listening to the river and letting it speak in the stillness is an invitation to listening to the deeper rhythms of our life...
God of azure sky and broad horizon,
God of sandy creek and shady gum,
God of weathered, broody, silent ranges,
God of quiet, evening billabong.
God of searing heat and drought dry dust bowls,
God of lightning strike and raging fire,
God of fearful, howling, tearing cyclone,
God of swirling, muddy, inland flood.
God of ancient calm let your peace still us,
God of fearful storm fill us with awe,
God of lonely plains touch empty spaces
Where we are vulnerable enough,
To meet you.
From Prayers and Projects - Frontier Services
Deep peace of the running waves to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the Son of peace to you.
