‘Prayer’ – a poem

In my own scratch…


And in case you can’t read that…


In joy
I sing Your name.

In agony
I scream at You.

In grief
I beg for You.

But always, always
I call for You.


I have a “prayer” ritual, if you will.  It’s just me going for a walk and saying a few affirmations over and over again until I’ve calmed myself down.  Today, I was thinking about the different attitudes towards prayer, mediations, the divine, whatever, that we experience based on our moods.  This is what came to me from that.

Do you pray? Or affirm? Or meditate? Or some mashup of any of those? Does it help?
