"I am your servant, God.
When there is chaos around me, help me stay centered.
When those around me argue and fight,
let me be your peacemaker.
Show me what's important.
Help me to keep an open mind.
Help me soothe the anger of others.
Help me remember what is truly important.
Help me resolve the conflicts in my life.
(Name the chaotic situations and people with whom you're struggling; include yourself and the tough decisions you must face.)
Stay with me, God.
Enter into the hearts of all those
with whom I cannot find common ground.
Fill their hearts and fill mine.
Let us stop fussing and find peace.
I am your servant, God.
