A Prayer for the Week


Ah Holy spirit, I plant my feet
                   into the soil of the living God.
I turn my ear toward the voice of the calling Christ.
         I lean my life into the wind of holy change
                        Be fierce, be gentle
                         toss me, turn me,
                    shape me, dishevel me,
                                Ah Holy Spirit,
                             In gratitude I wait.
