The Courage to Pray Easter Prayers

By Peter Menkin

Searching for the words, the courage

to pray enters my life. Like an arrow,

the declaration of thanksgiving comes

and I say aloud, moving my lips:

Like promise, like heart song, like breath

that is in me--speak. My friend the monk

advises: speak. So trying short notes,

with courage of soul, speak I do.

There is just the two of us; so I believe:

God in Christ, Holy Spirit, for it is courage

brought to the self through the grace of God,

I pray. Like an arrow, the words go heavenward.
