Dec 9, 2020 || Daily Thought & Prayer


Earnest pilgrim’s quest increase

Of how to pray without a cease

In midst of daily chores and home

The mind is to distractions prone

No answer told from pulpit high

No sermon satiates heart’s cry

A yearning forces it to search

Directions clear beyond a church

Lips relentlessly joined repeat

Those seeds which grow to meet

Deep thoughts in beloved steeped

Subtle findings to rewards reaped

Forms and sounds shaped to tune

Mind’s spiral inward to commune

Glorious union’s light acclaim

Open by intimate spell of name


O Lord unfaltering guide on pilgrim’s way, grant that by Thy feet I stay. Grant that I may know the subtle secret of unceasingly praying with head, heart and hands and forever with Thy holy name repeated in my mind and on my lips.
