Poem For The Sunday Lectionary (Epiphany 5, Yr B)

AND THERE HE PRAYED
(Mark 1: 29-39)

In the darkness, light:
enfolding him, embracing him,
as we are embraced and enfolded
in our prayer.

In the emptiness, presence:
meeting him, receiving him,
as we are met and received
in our prayer.

In the stillness, peace:
nourishing him, refreshing him,
as we are refreshed and nourished
in our prayer.

In the spaciousness, listening:
hearing him, affirming him,
as we are heard and affirmed
in our prayer.

In the sacredness, calling:
beckoning him, directing him,
as we are directed and beckoned
in our prayer.
