I haven’t posted in a while, and i am not always recorded, but this was sent to me last month, and we need it now. It is filled with mis-speaking, and opens with a technical glitch . but please join this conversation…


The phrase “thoughts and prayers” fills our social media as well as the mouths of politicians and journalists…emojis of praying hands fill out text messages, and activists carry signs like “no more thoughts, no more prayers, time for action”
but What really is prayer and what does it mean to really pray?

When I was a little girl, I was read a wonderful bedtime story by Margaret Wise Brown, no not Good Night Moon… but A Child’s Good Night Book, and it ended with a prayer…

Dear Father, hear and bless
Thy beasts and singing birds
And guard with tenderness
Small things that have no words…

we need this now, please listen
