Let Wonder Have Its Way

20 Oct Let Wonder Have Its Way

While I am away, one more prayer from Guerrillas of Grace:

Let Wonder Have Its Way with Me

O God, your gracious Spirit

moves over the mysteries of living and dying

and is strangely present to me

in the falling leaves,

the call of the wild geese,

a child’s birth,

the light in a friend’s eyes,

the sudden lifting of the heart,

and the deep longing which brings me to you now.


Make me aware of your presence

that wonder may have its way with me,

my passion be released,

my confidence renewed in the depths of your holiness

until, for a moment,

my longing for you be fulfilled

and I know I am really free

to share bread and intimacy,

to laugh and exchange mercy,

to be at ease in my struggles,

bold in my loving,

brave in facing down my terror,

hopeful in the rising music of your kingdom,

joyful in my living,

and graceful in my life becoming

a song of praise ever sung to you.


May it ever be so. Amen and Amen.
