Prepare

         Prepare the way of the Holy One,
         make God’s paths straight

                  â€”Matthew 3.3

Is there room for the child in the inn?
How do I prepare a way for God
through my cluttered life?
How do I clear a straight path
through my schedule?

Some things have to be moved or tossed,
a vacancy created.
How my nature abhors this vacuum!

Shall I plead I can’t squeeze God in?
Or take courage and prepare a way?

God, help me to open a way for you
to enter my heart, my time, my desires.
Even when I want so many other things,
give me grace to want you.
Prepare your way in me.
Make room.

Breath prayer:

         Prepare… your way
