Pause for Prayer: THURSDAY 7/21

There's a heat wave in my part of the world so I'm posting a prayer I wrote back in 2007, a text I've  been reworking ever since.  

The morning sunlight
    floods my porch,
    warms my legs
    and loosens stiffened limbs...

Your golden mercy softens me
like butter for the baker:
    a recipe to make of me
    much more than I have been...
 As butter into batter,
    fold me deep in your embrace,
in the heat of summer sun, Lord,
    melt and fold me in your arms...
Bake me in your noonday oven,
    fired with the warmth of grace,
then break me open as your loaf,
    sweet Jesus, baker, Lord...
