Grant Light, Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns

.

For the nuns and sisters suffering in the many war-torn lands of our world, we pray this prayer written by Thomas Merton:

“Grant light, grant strength and patience to all who work for peace. But grant us above all to see that our ways are not necessarily your ways, that we cannot fully penetrate the mystery of your designs and that the very storm of power now raging on this earth reveals your hidden will and your inscrutable decision.

Grant us to see your face in the lightning of this cosmic storm, O God of holiness, merciful to men. Grant us to seek peace where it is truly found. In your will, O God, is our peace. Amen.”
