Awaken in me oh God another animal, a dog, I pray, carefree, playful, generous, loving, living in the moment.
To be affirmed, to be accepted, to feel loved and interconnected with others. Yes, that’s still what I long for.
Let me become empty, that you may fill me up. Let me become desolate, that my hunger for you may grow.
The question is not whether God hears our prayers…
…prayer has become silent, listening to the unformed words God speaks through my spirit, and my response is to say yes, giving consent, to love.
