Grace and Peace to you.
We do not know how to pray as we ought,
but the Spirit intercedes
with sighs too deep for words.
Without your knowing
your lungs breathe, your heart beats,
nerves fire, even while you are asleep.
Deep within you, beneath your knowing,
the Spirit prays.
You are the vessel.
Prayer is simply mindfulness
that God is praying in you.
Your deepest prayers
God is silently uttering for you,
forgiving what is past,
blessing what is,
moving toward what may be.
It doesn’t matter what you pray,
what you think, how you feel.
God is praying in you.
You are simply here,
the rose unfolding from the bud.
