For small wins in a time of deep struggle
For babies born in a world addicted to death
For warm spirits in a cold society
For elder wisdom amidst the chaos
For ancestral guides leading us to liberation
For love undeserving yet steadfast
We say thank you, God

One thought on “Wednesday Prayer”
For words that are just pull-on-the-sock-right … and words that challenge us into new thoughts, Thank you.
