Through our fragmentary prayer
and our silent heart hid sighs
wordlessly the Spirit
bears our profoundest needs and cries.
Deeper than the pulse's beat is
the Spirit's speechless groan,
making human prayers complete
through the prayer that is God's own.
Let our jabberings give way
to the hummings in the soul
as we yield our lives this day
to the God who makes us whole.
Search and sound our mind and heart,
Breath and Flame and Wind and Dove,
let your prayer in us impart strength
to do the work of love.
