Courage to pray Easter prayers, poem by Peter Menkin

by Peter Menkin  
6/04/2010 / Poetry

Searching for the words, the courage
to pray enters my life. Like an arrow,
the declaration of thanksgiving comes
and I say aloud, moving my lips:

Like promise, like heart song, like breath
that is in me--speak. My friend the monk
advises: speak. So trying short notes,
with courage of soul, speak I do.

There is just the two of us; so I believe:
God in Christ, Holy Spirit, for it is courage
brought to the self through the grace of God,
I pray. Like an arrow, the words go heavenward.
