prayers journey



Prayer once was


A formula to follow

Head logic

Self justified

Lists of requests

Words of a reluctant listener

Duty bound


Prayer then became


A wrestling match

Fiery “whys?”

Angry ventings

Despairing cries for help

Stagnating into empty silences

Giving into brokenness


Prayer is now


Renewed awareness

Responding to the Divine

Celebrating the ordinary

Bursts of insight

Jumps of joy

Pictures in my mind

Spirit's quiet breathing

Cleansing tears

Holy anger

Deep compassion

Healing solitude

Creative expression

Constant surprises

A journey of the heart
