a prayer of presence

Image: Lucy MillsTeach me
O God, to seek you –
to draw near to you
in the rhythms of my living.
Nurture in me
a new awareness of you
beside me, within me
before me –
in every moment of my days.

Draw close,
divine comforter;
whisper the words
of Wisdom to my soul
so that with every breath
I bear witness
to your presence –
indwelling and
compelling me to love.

Call me
to a new kind
of mindfulness;
touching your heart
in my waiting
before you;
like Mary, content
to learn from you,
here at your feet.
