Waiting on the edge of needful change, Heart of Compassion help us hold, comfort, and sustain one another until such changes may be wrought. Though the way is long and difficult, though we have many reasons night and day for discouragement, though distraction and dissolution want to lure us away from what is needful and good, may we be steadfast. May we be steadfastly loving, steadfastly helping, steadfastly caring, steadfastly generous, steadfastly risking to fulfill our faithful promises. Waiting for the needful changes, Heart of Compassion, help us stay steady in making those changes real. Amen.
