A Quiet Prayer

Dear God,

It seems as though our talks never go past me asking you for things, spiritual and material

Like St. Teresa of Avila said, I know I pay you a compliment by asking great things of you

But I want to hear you too

Teach me to invite you into every moment

May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart ever be acceptable in your sight

May my prayer rise to you like sweet-smelling  incense

Help me hear your still, small voice in the silence of my heart

Amen
