Balance

 

May I find the balance, Lord,
As I relate to you –
To speak, but also listen,
For we are not one, but two.

May I talk things through with you,
As we share every day;
Then spend a while in silence 
When there’s nothing more to say.

Thus, may we live together,
Dearest Father, Spirit, Son, 
Rejoicing in communion –
For we are not two, but one.

Prayer

Naked

Hello, everyone. This prayer come to me yesterday, straight after taking communion. It was followed by a second, related one, which I will post here tomorrow.

Naked

Father,
As always,
I am naked and ashamed before you,
For nothing can ever be concealed
From you.

Please transform me:
Forgive all my sins.

Heal me through and through:
Heart and soul,
Body and mind.

Make just a little more like your beloved Son,
I beg you.

In his dear name,
Amen.
