Another way of being, another way of knowing.

Dear God,

We pray for another way of being, another way of knowing.

Across the difficult terrain of our existence we have attempted to build a highway and in doing so have lost our footpath. God, lead us to our footpath: lead us there where in simplicity we may move at the speed of natural creatures and feel the earth’s love beneath our feet. Lead us there where step by step we may feel the movement of creation in our hearts. And lead us there where we may feel the embrace of the common soul.

Nothing can be loved at speed. God, lead us to the slow path; to the joyous insights of the pilgrim; another way of knowing, another way of being.

Amen

With thanks to Michael Leunig – ‘A Common Prayer’ or ‘The Prayer Tree’ and Mum, for the reminder in perfect timing.
