Hover here just as you hovered over the waters of creation O God.
Make order out of the chaos that is our lives and our world this day. Hover close to all that we might recognize you in the face of the other, in the face of stranger and dare we pray in the face of those we view as enemies.
Hover close as we feel especially vulnerable this day as chaos has taken on new forms and deeper discord.
Inspire us beyond ourselves towards paths of peace and full justice. Hover here O God, just as you hovered over the waters of creation, create afresh and anew this very day.
May it be so.
