A FEW PRAYERS FROM SOUL SISTERS

Angels
Dear god
I asked you to send me angels
I looked to the skies for winged bright-light creatures
While I was looking
A stranger showed me kindness
My children said they loved me
A friend called me to chat
My cat curled in my lap
I spent time with my parents
I held my partner’s hand
A bird sang in my garden
I asked you to send me angels
I think I can stop searching now…
Amen


Roadside assist
Dear God
My car has broken down
And I can’t go where I want to be
I expect reliability when I travel
Be it on the road or on the journey of life
But all trips are unpredictable
Roads are fraught with potholes
Cars and people break
We need repair
And care
Be my roadside assist
My extended warranty
Help me travel life safely
Amen

Microwave
Dear God
The speed of the microwave mirrors my life
Learn fast, live fast, and do fast
Round and round I go
Like the turntable inside
Heating from the inside
Sometimes feeling spattered
Shrivelling if over pressured
Help me be less intense
Select a lower power strength
Help me slow down
Amen
