we pray, our God, not because

We pray, our God, not because it’s something we have to do,
but because it’s something that has to do with who we are,
not because we believe we can thus change what is,
but because we believe we thus express our trust in who is,
not because we believe in magic transforming circumstance,
but because we believe in presence transforming us through circumstance,
So we pray by grace with faith in community.
We pray through trust in relationship with courage.
We pray with assurance in hope through love, amen.
