                     Praying

            It doesn’t have to be

            the blue iris, it could be

            weeds in a vacant lot, or a few

            small stones; just

            pay attention, then patch

 

            a few words together and don’t try

            to make them elaborate, this isn’t

            a contest but the doorway

 

            into thanks, and a silence in which

            another voice may speak.

                                                                                                                                                                 (By Mary Oliver.)

            Gracious God, help us to approach each day with gratitude and an openness to hearing Your voice.—AMEN.
