Pause for Prayer: TUESDAY 2/11

Take My Heart by Gwen Meharg

Who doesn't long and pray
for peaceful days and restful nights?

Who doesn't hope
for a day without worries,
an evening brimming with contentment?

Whose heart doesn't ache
to be known, accepted and loved
- no strings attached?

Who among us knows another
whose heart's greatest desires
are any different than our own?

We are all much more the same than we are different:
in  the depths of our souls
our similarities far outnumber our disparities...

From the same place within
all of us need and hunger
for the same love
and only one who knows that hunger well
can feed another's heart...

Gracious, loving God,
help us know and nourish
the hearts of all around us
and open our hearts
to all who would, with love,
feed and nourish us...
