On Praying

The stuff our prayers are made of

The stuff our prayers are made of

We come to Him with fragmented pieces in disarray. God knows what to do with them.

Grace in Midlife

Praying

It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.”

–Mary Oliver, Thirst
