A Prayer for Childlikeness
Dear Kaleid Ladies,
Good morning! Today we share a poem that calls us to childlikeness and rest, the first set of postures and practices for healing in Kaleid’s To Be Made Well email series. We pray that you are blessed as you receive God’s generous parenting of your heart today.
Also, if you’d like to join us for the second meeting of the book club on Amy Julia Becker’s book To Be Made Well next Wednesday night (the 13th), we would love to have you! Amy Julia will be meeting us via zoom, and we’ll be sharing dinner and discussion and laughter together as we unpack the second half of the book. Learn more here!
“Breathe into Me”
O God, empty me of angry judgments
and aching disappointments,
and anxious trying,
and breath into me
something like quietness and confidence,
that the lion and the lamb in me
may lie down together
and be led by a trust
as straightforward as a little child.
Catch my pride and doubt off guard
that, at least for the moment,
I may sense your presence
and your caring,
and be surprised by a sudden joy
rising in me now
to sustain me in the coming then.
(Ted Loder, Guerrillas of Grace)
We love you,
The Kaleid Team
