This Is My Prayer

This is my prayer...
to look with wonder at the ocean filling the horizon
to see the waves crashing on the rocks
to watch the foam scrub the sand.


This is my prayer...
to hear the song of the sea
to see the windblown palms
to smell the rain on the wind
to feel the wind and sun on my skin.

This is my prayer...
watching the scented smoke curl up to heaven
breathing in the ancient sacred fragrances, frankincense and myrrh
blowing on the coals
watching the sparks fly
feeling the heat from the glowing coals.

This is my prayer...
tasting the sea
touching the sand
smelling the flowers
savoring the fruit.


This is my prayer...
speaking the ancient words of scripture
praying the words
hearing the words
sharing the words
wrestling and being wrestled by the words
and the Word in the words.

This is my prayer...
walking
swimming
sitting
seeing
touching
tasting
listening
reading
writing
preaching
praying
being.

Here.
