01d32b8ffb8c91d28713fb9e43243a9b6f3bb1ac9fI say tomato, you say tomato

I say second of January, you say January second
I say bonnet, you say hood,
I say boot, you say trunk

I say courgette you say zucchini
I say aubergine you say eggplant
I say rocket, you say arugula (I had to go look that one up)

I say, thanks be to God, and so do you
I say, please pray for me, and so do you,
I say, O Lord, bless us, and so do you

I say, O Precious Holy Breath, breathe in and through me,
I say, O Sweet Holy Friend, thank you
Thank you for my friends, holy and anointed
Thank you for all that unites us in you
Thank you for all that joins us together
Thank you even, for all those funny words, the same yet different…

Thank you for one more trip round the sun together,
Remind us often, that we are not alone, but united in you

O Precious
O Sweet
O Holy
O Love
I say,
And you say,
Amen

One thought on “Monday Prayer

  1. I thank God for you, Julie, and for the entire RevGalBlogPals team and community. You have become my ministers as I minister to others, and my valued colleagues. I am grateful for the daily prayers that often put into words the things on my own heart, for your willingness to address the most challenging issues facing our world, for the lifeline that is the 11th Hour Preacher Party – and, when things just are NOT coming together for Sunday, for the relief I feel when Pearl Down Under posts that it IS Sunday, post-worship, on her side of the globe, and I know that, come hell or high water, I will get there, too! My thanks to you all, and blessing upon blessing for the New Year.
