PRAYER TO BE THE GENTLE LAYER OF MY OPINION

Oh, God,
please help me hold–
and still hold forth–
my strong opinions. . .

in all humility. . .

and with respect,
and an attentive
ear and heart
to those
who differ with me,

with a sense
of purpose,
joy,
and service,

so wide to shine,

so others may extract
a light
that is uniquely mine,
and ubiquitously Thine,

to allow
the proper flow,

so that Thy Will
may Be,
in continuity,

throughout the countless
grains of time,

which, like smooth sand,
our finite lives define,
within the Infinite
of moons and worlds and stars
that can be ours,
in perpetuity,

Where all Good flows
so wondrous
and free.
