Sunday Prayer

Great Physician,

We read stories of miraculous cures

And ancient healings

By Your hand.

How easy it can be for us to ask

Why them and not us?

How easy it can be to turn to you

On a Sunday morning

With wish list prayers.

Great Physician

Here are our ailments;

Now what medicine do you prescribe?

Perhaps it is we who like to ignore

The prescriptions You suggest.

For what you offer often

Defies our logic

Unsettles our certainty

And is provided as a simple suggestion.

That is how you respond

In suggestions and whispers

Hunches and nudges.

Great Physician

Open our eyes and ears

To notice You around us.

Free us from the confines

of our own hearts and minds.

That we too may be filled with gratitude

And sing Your praise.
