In this space,
We turn to you,
O boundary-crossing Healer.
We come to you screaming and frenzied,
locked up by everything that keeps us from Life.
We know you, but can’t see our way through to being one withYou.
We approach you in the middle of the night,
O wise Teacher,
hoping that no one might recognize us,
except for You. We long for you to know us, to nourish us,
to educate our hearts and minds equally.
We seek your Love.
We know You So Love this World,
that you do not never anything that keeps anyone or anyplace from that Love.
And so we pray,
to believe in that Love. To trust that love so much
that we would moved to break boundaries with You,
to carry your Good News to places no one expects to find it.
Make us your brave disciples,
people who live loudly
in your mercy and grace.
Give us the kind of compassion and authority
we need to cast out the demons of this world~~
fear and loneliness,
injustice and war,
poverty and racism and xenophobism and beyond.
We pray this prayer for Love’s sake,
