The author’s youngest grandchild, Journee, born 9 weeks early and many in this community prayed for her. Here is she now four months old and 10 lbs. ¡mil gracias!

You call us to be like children ~

Trusting; in need of connection

Able to laugh and play; able to rest

Thank you, Loving God

For holding us close to your heart

And for inviting us to let go.

Amen and buenas noches ~

One thought on “Wednesday Prayer

  1. Thank you for a chance to see her, embodied prayer, to inspire our prayers – for we need to change the so much that endangers her life just as much as premature birth. And yes we are … children.
