PRAYER FOR A NEW BEGINNING

From pride
Deliver me O Lord
With all its attendant
Vanities

Deliver me
From perfectionism
Into Peace and
Patient living

To walk
When there is
No need to run

To stand still
When standing still
Is what You offer

To sincerely do
What is right
Regardless 

Of outside opinion

To Love
And Love well
The one with whom
I stand in the present

To bring the gift
Of Presence
To every person
Place and moment

Always remembering
That You alone are All
And hold the answer

To all our
Puzzled perplexities

Deepest searching

(New Year 2007)
