Evening Prayer June 5
Heart of mine, when troubled, stop here longer in prayer. Listen to the song of the world, to the healing of the broken-hearted, to the bearers of hope rebuilding with the bereft, to the creators of compassion who know grief and know the ways of restoration. Heart of mine, rest here in the quiet for a while longer, held by the whole, until ready to try again, until hunger prods toward breaking bread and sharing that with someone else who may turn out to be in as much, if different, need. Heart of mine, can you feel the song of Love sings you into being in this moment? Turn into it, breathe, raise your heart in thanksgiving, and rejoin this dance of life with gratitude, with wonder, with not knowing what will come next. What comes next? An ‘Alleluia’, a steadying breath, the work and life that matters – let us be ready to live into the yes. Amen.
