Reverend Carl Gauck offered the following prayer:

"When you are disturbed, do not sin; ponder it on your beds, and be silent." (Psalm 4:4)

Gracious God, each day there are those people and events that are most disturbing and sometimes outright aggravating. Help us to understand what is so upsetting to us and how we may better deal with such people and events. Help us to be able to be silent and not vengeful but seek ways to learn from such encounters and serve even those who may upset us. This we ask in Your Holy Name. Amen.
