Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased
with ourselves,
when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little,
when we have arrived safely because we sail too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, with the abundance of things we
possess,
we have lost our thirst for the waters of life;
having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity
and in our efforts to build a new earth we have allowed our vision of the new heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly to venture on wider seas where storms will show your mastery;
where losing sight of land we shall find the stars.
We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes;
and to push into the future in strength, courage, hope and love.
