Day 21 of Advent: a prayer for learning



We’ve been trying to learn one thing or another

all these years,

trying to pick up Your voice,

trying to catch Your scent

as we traipse along

our paths,

each different from another.

So while we’re trying to 

configure You

in our own small minds,

teach us who You are

in the most tangible ways,

the human ways

that each of us can


You were a miracle then,

and You are a miracle now.

Teach us to

catch that


and spread it 

over our breadths 

and depths.

May we learn Your miracle ways.
