Our Father, who has set a restlessness in our hearts, and made us seekers after that which we can never truly find; draw us away from base content and set our minds on far-off goals.
Keep us at tasks too hard for us that we may be driven to Thee for strength. Deliver us from fretfulness and self-pitying; make us sure of the good we cannot see and of the hidden good in the world.
Open our eyes to simple beauty all around us, and our hearts to the loneliness men hide from us because we do not try to understand them.
Save us from ourselves and show us a vision of the world made new.
