Prayer


You call to us in the darkest of nights and the brightest of days
To embrace your path and accept your solace.

We turn from you

and

Writhe like a worm on a fishing hook
Unable to see beyond our afflictions to your infatuation with us as we are.

Settle our minds.

Calm our hearts.

Make our spirits open to your enduring and all-encompassing love

so

We can become what you always intended for us

Creatures of quiet joy.
