Praying with Psalm 121

Divine, quiet Love,
excuse me for not listening enough.
In silence I start to hear:
My heart beats, my breath moves,
my eyes blink, then close.
Then I watch the flow of my thoughts.
Alert I rest.

In the things you do, Holy God,
I read your answers to my prayers,
your response to my attempts to pray.
Let me put before us today your actions
for they are the only answers to my prayers
I ever expect to receive,
and I should not be surprised
that you do not answer in words or miracles
for all your actions are miracles enough. . . .
