A Prayer for the Journey of my Life

January 13, 2010


A restless wind blows tonight

Wide awake I achingly wonder

How to help this challenged world?

Small in the hand of the creator

I ask

Tell me, what must I do?

My ancestors show me – I have weathered many great storms

Resilience passed down through the ages

I do not doubt my strength.

Small in the hand of god

I ask

Show me, what must I do?

Longing to be nursed with purpose

To ripple change across this beloved earth

I stare straight into the heart of the divine

Tell me how to use this one blessed body?

Show me how I sing a new creation into being

With the breath of life I bring.  

I pray

For guidance


What I came here to do.
