we are given to prayer
when faced with extremes
sometimes things are beyond us
and we don’t have the means
we pray then for help
support, inspiration

we pray for understanding
and that our strength be renewed
surrendering our worries
that they may be reviewed
by the Presence that’s there
we are always looked after

we pray for patience
we pray for the seeds
those we’ve vested in or planted
may they flourish and grow
we pray for the daylight,  for a coming together
we pray for the more, the more we will sow
ideas, precious visions
new ways to be

we pray for all life
to be happy and free

and we give thanks
