NIGHT PRAYER: Wednesday 6/16

I believe in peace of mind
    even when my thoughts are troubled...

I believe in tomorrow
    when today is going nowhere...

I believe in prayer
    even when I cannot pray...
I believe in truth
    even when I cannot find it...

I believe in beauty
    when all is stark and barren...

I believe in joy
    even when my heart is grieving...

I believe in friendship
    even when I'm all alone...

I believe in the sun
    even when it isn't shining...

I believe in love
    even when I do not feel it...

And Lord, I believe in you
     even when you're silent...

Protect me, Lord, while I'm awake
and watch over me while I sleep
that awake, I might keep watch for you
and asleep, rest in your peace...


Even When He Is Silent by Kim Andre Arnesen,
    performed by the Atlanta Master Chorale


These words, scratched on a cellar wall,
were written by a Jew hiding in Cologne, Germany, 
during World War 2.
