Prayer

Community prayer

Like a magnet grounded in wisdom, Provident God, you draw us from North, South, West and East into a mysterious oneness we cannot resist.

What is it you want or ask of us in this world, so fragmented by tribalism, self-interests and extreme individualism?

What is it you want? I pray.

In the silence, a small voice answers: This is what I ask – this and this alone: That you accept the call to companion one another on the path of Providence I will unfold.

You are a remarkable piece of the puzzle of humanity. Let me fit you into the big picture according to my design.

You will radiate energy and love, creativity and light beyond imagination. You will not be alone but an integral part of a community of men and women who will walk with you, challenge you, form you as I wish.

Do I hear your “Yes?”

With a deep breath rising from trust,

I respond: Let it be so.
