A Prayer About Prayer

I was reminded today that prayer is essential
To who I am
To who I ever hope to be

Help me Holy Spirit to intercede for others
Let it be the substance of what makes me
Fused into my DNA
Teach me Lord to pray

Alone with You
And when I'm in a crowd
While I do my daily work
When I'm happy
When I'm sad
When I'm frustrated
When I'm mad

Let prayer motivate me to love
To act on another's behalf
Let me be a blessing to those around me

A reflection of the Father to others
As I pray, make me sensitive to the diverse needs around me

Use me Lord
May I be one flawed clay vessel
Full of You
And overflowing with prayer
