Beloved


This one is for Kim....
with whom I share the Lenten practice
of praying the Lord's Prayer....

Beloved,
You who dwell
at the heart of Creation,
come
and make yourself known to us.

Give us this day
life in its fullness.
Forgive us when we
deny it in others
as we forgive those
who take it from us.
Keep us from hopelessness
and despair and deliver us
into freedom.

For you are life,
and breath, body
and being in
every moment's
eternity.

Amen.
