3/26/20: Faith Formation – Prayer

Thursday Prayer (it’s long but worth the read)!

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to walk barefoot in the grass and occasionally roll down a soft grassy hill. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to sleep outdoors, under the canopy of heaven. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to watch the sun come up over the ocean.

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to stand in an open meadow on a clear, starry night. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to climb a mountain. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to sit among the branches of a tree. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to swim in a lake or a river or an ocean or a bay and feel your body supported by water. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to take a great gulp of country air at night or after a rainfall. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to jump into great piles of crunchy autumn leaves. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to build sandcastles and feel the sand run through your fingers and slip between your toes. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to plant vegetables and herbs or simply dig in dirt. 

I believe, with a deep and abiding faith, that it is a holy act to dance bare- foot in the moonlight, see the horizon, witness a rainbow, hug a tree, touch the sky.
