Lenten Anglican Prayers- Walter Russell Bowie on Poise


Almighty and everlasting God, lord of lords and light of light, who are revealed in the unfathomable heavens and in the quiet of unhurried stars, let our restlessness find rest in thee. May our wills become obedient to thy greater will, so that we may move, as the stars move, in the orbit of eternity; and without confusion and without haste, but with shining steadfastness, go on our appointed ways; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Walter Russell Bowie (1882-1969)
from Give Us Grace: An anthology of Anglican prayers, compiled by Christopher L. Webber
