    “Prayer for Many Gifts” by Stephen Cherry

    Give me, O Lord, a calm soul and a clear head, a broad mind and a generous spirit.

    Give me, a warm heart and a listening ear, my true voice and a gentle touch.

    Give me, a hunger for justice and a thirst for peace, a passion for

    truth and a love of mercy.

    Give me, a painter’s eye and a poet’s tongue, a saint’s patience and a prophet’s hope.

    Give me, a sage’s wisdom and a fool’s delight, a pilgrim’s purpose and an angel’s content. Amen.

    Coronavirus Prayer Experiment - An opportunity to pray more during this season, which for many is one of enforced inactivity. Check out the Prayer Pages for the full story and the inspiration behind it or listen to the audio clip.
