Poem For The Sunday Lectionary (Pentecost +2, Yr C)

A PRAYER
(1 Kings 8: 22-23, 41-43, Luke 7: 1-10)

Come through the doors of our house, Lord.
Let us admit you whether we feel
        worthy or unworthy,
             holy or sinful,
                 faithful or wavering.
Come through the doors of our house just the same.

Come to the house of our hearts, Lord,
        our searching hearts, our contented hearts,
             our caring, giving, loving hearts,
                  our needy, angry, anxious hearts,
come to the house of our hearts in joy or pain.

Come to the house of our days, Lord,
        our happy days, our hurting days,
             our bitter days, our bright days,
                  our struggling, sorrowing, sad days,
come to the house of our days in sun or in rain.

Come to the house of our world, Lord,
        our wondrous world, our wounded world,
             our teeming world, our tortured world,
                  our singing, shouting, crying world,
come to the house of our world, and let us be changed.
