from Joyce Rupp’s prayer, Listening to My Soul

Guardian of my Deepest Self,

I need to be still, to listen

not only to falling leaves

and the gentle wind;

I need to listen to my soul,

too long neglected. . .

Let me be still

amid the beauty of the earth.

Let me be a silent admirer

of all that is sacred.

Let me be reverent

in the presence of another.

Let me restore my inner eye.

Let me put to rest the wildness

of endless activity. . .
