CHRISTMAS PRAYER
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

Kind, loving Father...
From the silent reaches of my
Heart...
I hear Thee speak to me...

In hushed stillness I listen
To Thy teachings...
I see Thee in the fragile
Butterfly and feel Thy
Strength in the storm!

You are the wondrous
Mystery in all life
For I lift the stone and
Find Thee...

You dwell in each of my
Brothers...
Those of feather and fur
And many colors of complexion...

Thy voice speaks in the wail
Of the wolf and the homeless
Child!
Those who suffer spiritually
And physically...
Suffer aloneness and abuse.

For this and every season
I pray for peace of mind
For kindness of heart,
For love of all life
In the many forms You dwell...

I pray for earth who cradles us all
For mankind to end his
Selfishness...
His hate and greed!

Plant the Seed of Love in
Each heart that it may grow
And multiply..
For I ask these things in the
Name of the great Teacher,
Jesus.... Amen
