Prayer Offered for May 30, 2023

Gracious God, silenced, hands and heart open, I pray:

Brush away what keeps me stuck, dulled

By figuring, not listening to Your presence, Your words.

“What [am I] looking for? [What am I] expecting to see?”

Like the banks of a river

I need to wait, ready to receive sacred life

And ready to let go….

Tuned to Your rhythms, O God,

Give us eyes to see the shadows

Where holiness lies invisible

In questions and uncertainties without answers.

We dwell in mystery,

Connection, communion, Your heartbeat everywhere.—AMEN.

(“We Dwell in Mystery” by Alice Feeley, RDC)
