Season of Creation Daily Day 7: A better prayer

Take a moment to reflect on the photo. 

Prayer has a deeper priority (than making yourself holy); it is the sanctification of the world of which you are a privileged inhabitant.Listen to the voices of longing in your soul, your hungers. …
Make a prayer that is big enough for your wild soul, Write a prayer that is worthy of the destiny to which you have been called.

— John O’Donohue (1956-2008)
Irish poet, author, priest, philosopher, from Eternal Echoes

Wholeness consists of coming back into relationship with what is deepest in all things;
 that is, the of-Godness at the heart of the earth and all life forms and all people.
— John Philip Newell 
poet, peacemaker, minister and scholar, internationally acclaimed in the field of Celtic spirituality

Write a prayer.

 Special thanks for the way poets open our hearts to the sacred
