8th April – A Prayer for Today

When a super moon
lifts the hours of night
We thank you Lord.

When the breakfast table
is bathed in sunlight
We thank you Lord

When a hand written letter
lands on the doormat
We thank you Lord

When the telephone rings
and it’s not a call centre
We thank you Lord

When the news bulletin
suggests a chink of light
We thank you Lord

When we think of a man
alone in his understanding of all that must follow
We thank you – and wonder
