Inspired by a local listserve’s back-n-forth about prayer–the belief in, efficacy of, purpose for, and belly-aching about it not being the ‘proper’ platform to discuss such matters–I felt this.
My Prayer for Today
That you hear the Divine both within silence and a child’s laughter,
That you see the Divine both in yourself and another,
That you touch the Divine both in a blade of grass and burbling water,
That you feel the Divine both in the sting of the wind and touch of a lover,
That you know the Divine both in action and stillness.
