At times when the words of prayer don’t come so easily, what then? Perhaps the answer is simply to pray for the gift of prayer. To listen along, click on the triangle in the bar below (website only). The text follows.
Source of All,
Fill my heart with joy and thanksgiving,
My eyes with vision and hope,
My limbs with strength and vigor.
Fill my breath with kindness and grace,
So that the wonder of Your blessings never leaves me.
Then my lips will remember to sing in holy praise,
To sing of beauty and glory and love.
Rock of Israel,
We pray for the gift of prayer,
For song and music,
For silence and devotion,
For steadfast love of You.
With prayer we bless You.
With song we praise You.
With music we extol You.
With silence we hear You.
With devotion we follow You.
In love we declare Your Holy Name.
