Lent Prayer 38 -April 11

Lent Prayer 38

in the last days we

seem to cry

about things that

have not gone well

in our lives


as if we were supposed

to be immune from

the gifts you gave us of

mortality and limits


as if my body was not

joy enough even if not

forever, nor my soul

meant for more.
