Oh, God,

spinning
artist

We are off kilter.
Steady us.
We are frenetic.
Calm us.
We are dizzy.
Center us.

Remind us that it is
always the nature of
the powers and principalities
to spin the wheel ever
faster and faster and faster
until we are completely
disoriented.

Remind us that it is
always the nature of
your grace
to abide,
to breathe,
to create,
to love,
to know,
to help,
to secure,
to be.

Amen.
