Sea of mercy

Lord, open to us the sea of your

mercy,

and water us with full steams

from the riches of your grace

and the springs of your kindness.

Make us children of quietness

and heirs of peace;

kindle in us the fire of your love,

and strengthen our weakness by your power

as we become close to you and to

each other.

Amen

– From the Syrian Church, in An Iona Prayer book. Compiled by Peter W Millard.
