Prayers for a Whole Life : Day 21

a prayer for prayer


God,

teach us to listen,
not just talk

teach us to be silent,
not automatically fill the
space with words

teach us to see
ourselves in your Story

teach us to pull our scattered thoughts
in to the Center

teach us to praise,
not just askaskask

teach us to share
the practice of prayer together,
not to try to make it only “mine”

and
lead us
in the neverending
Amen.
