Teach Me To Pray

God,

When I am aloneI find a resting place

I find a resting place inside

inside all my desires

beyond all my concerns

in the midst of the darkness and light

that are One.

How I miss my repose

when others are near.

Can I find my way there

in the midst of a crowd,

around trusted friends,

in the presence of beloved family?

Lead me Home.

Teach me to Pray.


First prayed in the St. Gervais Church in Paris, France
