finding Jesus


Be strong, and let your heart

          take courage,

    all you who wait for the

          LORD. Psalm 31:24

– – – – –

this day, O Lord,

give me courage

to open my eyes

to see you where you dwell

in the everyday-

to see you in the needy,

those who long to share the

depth  of their hearts,

to turn a listening ear

to those who have

no one to share a fair word with;

to share a meal

with the lost and the

least, and

not hunger for a place

at the head table;

to open up my own abundance

and stop imagining

it all belongs to


to honor all those

the world shames,

and wrap them in

respect’s soft shawl;

to trust in you, not

in my baser


give me courage this day and

every day.
