O Lord, keep us from doing,
just for the sake of doing.
Keep us from springing into action,
simply because we have no better alternative.
Keep us from manufacturing and creating,
when should be sitting still
and depending on you to move and act.
Keep us from spinning our wheels,
just for the sake of spinning them.
We can do nothing apart from you, O Lord,
so help us just to be still and wait for you.
