A prayer for prayer 2 January 2009

Gifts: Prayer
Prayer and love are learned in the hour when prayer becomes impossible and the heart has turned to stone.
   - Thomas Merton
Lord God,
I thank you for the gift of prayer,
The gift of conversation with you.
The gift of you answering in ways I understand
In ways I seek to understand.
And to be understood.
I pray that my words are  enough
My actions are with my prayer,
My love, grace and peace, fitted to service in you.
Today and tomorrow.
May it be so.
I am on hiatus for a few days.  I will be in Israel.  If I am able, I will send out a prayer.
