Prayer to the Eternal One

“Eternal One,
Silence from whom my words come;
Questioner from whom my questions arise;
Lover of whom all my loves are hints;
Disturber in whom alone I find my rest;
Mystery in whose depths I find healing and myself;
enfold me now in your presence;
restore to me your peace;
renew me through your power;
and ground me in your grace.”
—Ted Loder, “Ground Me in Your Grace,” in Guerrillas of Grace: Prayers for the Battle (San Diego: LuraMedia, 1984), p. 5
