Invitation to Prayer
Close your eyes; reach out your hand.
Imagine a white cane in your hand.
It is as smooth as a psalm,
with a grip as never-let-go
as childhood bedtime words.
The tip is Amen –
Amen to everything you are,
and everything your life touches.
This is the white cane of prayer.
feel the edges of what you need to pray.
When you stand before crossings and crosses,
know that you are safe.
Feel your way, listen your way,
walk your way into God.
