Rough Passage, part II

(for Charleston, South Carolina)

God of empty tomb and parted seas,
hear the prayers of your people,
for this is the moment
before the miracle
when seas are rough
and we cannot see land.

Awaken, O God, and help us believe
that you have not abandoned ship.

Speak to the violent of heart:
“Peace, be still!”
and may this storm, too, obey.
