Praying - by Mary Oliver
"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."
How simple and beautiful is that?
Just pay attention
and patch a few words together
knowing that silence is ok,
because it gives God space to speak.
Anyone can pray, if this is how we view prayer.
