#BlogElul 2018 Day 16 Pray

Pray for the big things, 
but don’t forget the small ordinary 
day to day needs
Pray the written down words
You know the prayers that
reside in books, or the ones
the community intones 
I like to know I’m saying 
some of the same words 
but often it’s the small prayers
that connect me to God

I pray for the groundhog
to find another place to bed down
after filling a hole with dirt and stones
 I pray for the listless hydrangea bush
that needs more rain water and less sun

and I pray to take the time to listen

for that small still voice
