A Prayer for December 9

Posted: December 9, 2011 in Uncategorized


of the tiniest and most expansive
of the most simple and most complex
of our confusions and fleeting strains of peace:

Give us what is needed for this day
but not more than that
lest we forget our ultimate dependence
fooling ourselves

Let us offer our lives entirely
not less than that
lest we forget the reason for our birth
imagining we’ve already done our bit

If it be your will
bless us that we might abide
in a satisfied corner of life
when our work is complete
though yours never is

  1. Menina says:

    And make us ever a reminder to others of Your grace and peace.
