Good Day, God!
This morning I read — from a handout our pastor gave us — this poem by Mary Oliver.
It makes PRAYER so simple. And I feel that is exactly how You want it to be. SIMPLE! So we don’t need to be special or ordained or qualified. We just need to pause and pray.
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 stores: 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.
