For a Fire in Winter – Week of Prayer for A Way Forward Continues

janko-ferlic-193847Prayer for April 5 

For a fire we would spark together

but which only now flickers in our withered imaginations,

For a blaze that warms

and does not lay waste,

For the hearth we would gather around

and admire the way a fine light dances in each other’s eyes,

For a way forward

on a Word-lit path,

For a fire in winter, Lord,

we pray.  Amen.

–Alex Joyner
