Lent 21

"A Prayer While Waiting for the Kingdom of God"

Give these bones
breath to dance.

Give your people
a song to sing in exile.

Give the mustard seed
roots to grow.

Give Hagar and Ishmael
an oasis to rest.

Give those behind locked doors
a vision of hope.

Give the widow
flour for her bread.

Give the fig tree
fruit to bear.

Give the leper

a temple for his praise.

Give the Easter lily
a reason to bloom.
