Prayers for a Whole Life : Day 31

a prayer for new growth


Lord,
take the seeds I have to offer
these tiny kernels of self
these dormant dreams
and
make them grow

I'm amazed at how
miraculous it is,
how I am always in awe,
every time you
call life to push up through the dark

even the smallest glimpse of green
--the birth the sprouting the faith--
calls me to praise

and I pray
that you will
let the roots go deep
let the stems be strong
let the leaves open wide
let the fruit be sweet
