Prayers for Pastors

For All the Things (a prayer)

dont-forget-to-fall-back_tFor the liminal space
when the hour
we just lived,
we relive,
clock turned back,
we pray.

For the numinous place
where we remember
the saints
we so loved,
time recovered,
we pray.

For the pragmatic dawn
when the day
we will face
demands right names
and lit candles.
we pray.

For the inevitable flub
discovered at the last,
we pray.

Sustain us, O Lord,
in the mysteries
and the logistics,
in the memories
and the right now,
for all the things.
