By The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
I know the prayer below is speaking metaphorically about the heart, but there’s something about the literal heartbeat lub-dub-lub-dub there right within you that is also a way into the presence of God. Your heart is powered, moment by moment, by the smallest most critical electrical impulses that make possible it’s constant thumping.
Heartbeat by heartbeat, may you pay attention to the divine life within you today.
Let us pray:
Give me a pure heart—that I may see Thee,
A humble heart—that I may hear Thee,
A heart of love—that I may serve Thee
A heart of faith—that I may abide in Thee. Amen
—Dag Hammarskjöld, 1905–1961
