A Prayer for Thursday, January 7, 2016


O God,

Most of us talk a lot.
Some of us text a lot.
Some of us post a lot.

Sometimes we need to hush.

Help us to listen more
and to listen better.

Help us to listen

to each other,
to your Spirit,
to your world, and
to our spirits.

Protect us against trying
to protect ourselves with
a constant barrage of words.

Help us to listen closely
and to take seriously

what we hear
who we hear.
