Make my life

I make my life a prayer, a constant plea
For those who feel ashamed to enter in
And ask for forgiveness, for those who
Do not have a voice, for those alone.

I make my life a prayer filled with the
Passion of your love poured out to all,
So they may know your care, so they
Can recognize your arms around them,
For those who feel locked outside.

I make my life a prayer from all the
Words that have been ever uttered,
Seeking grace, seeking comfort, seeking
Wisdom, seeking a deeper relationship.

I make my life a prayer connected
With all the lines of creation, back
To the ancient songs that raise their
Strains in praise giving the glory away.
