Prayer inviting quiet inner space
Poetry by Peter Menkin
Feb 3, 2001

In desire for the Lord, I look
at my book of Year One
now past, to find
Saturday and I confess
my notes O God,
in preparation for Sunday,
never failing providence
I copied, these words to speak
with my lips:

I confess You, One God ordereth
all things both in heaven and earth:
good words to set one’s heart to
pray, we humbly beseech thee
to put away from us all hurtful things and
to give us those things which are
profitable for us.
This gift offers, let my words speak
in praise to request,
beseeching and to give us
those things restoring us to life;
for we are like grass, and my
love a life-giving way undertaken
reverently to be mindful of You,
through Jesus Christ our Lord; to reflect
on any quiet inner space in which to
listen to the Word, living in communion
and journeying on this Epiphany.

Let us never forget this presence so I shall
lest through carelessness fall away from
the love of God and cease listening
and reading to know the generosity of
God resplendent;
in goodness as to add my words to the
innumerable and wonderful.
