Day 215

Let us not write a prayer; rather, let us compose them.  For writing implies some kind of conscious effort, an intellectual endeavor.  Prayer must be mystical, authentic, and divinely inspired.  The finest prayers are never spoken – they are felt.  Prayer resides in a tear, in laughter, and in gentle touch.  Prayer is present in anger and frustration.  Prayer imbues the act of lovemaking.  Prayer is in fact love-making: wherever, whenever we commune with deep truth, there is prayer.  So let us abandon the notion of clever prayer, and instead seek to nurture organic prayer.  For our new Green-prayer movement we give thanks.  Blessed Be, and Amen.
