Practicing Prayer by Bishop Carol Gallagher

Bishop Carol Gallagher


Practicing Prayer

Light one single flame

against evil and shame

turn away from attention

and turn your heart to God.


In the small spare room

on a subway platform

in the grocery line

let us find God.


Let no one see your prayer

let no one hear your words

let God alone play melody

and harmonize with the Divine.


Light a single flame

and let it melt your heart

seek the holy moment spark

and let your life be praise.


Let your prayer be service

hands ready to calm and feed

heart ready to welcome 

stranger and divine  together.
