Prayer of the Month

Lord
I wait for the tide to turn
until the distant becomes close
until the far-off becomes near
until the outside is within
until the ebb flows

Lord
I wait for the tide to turn
until weakness is made strong
until blindness turns to sight
until the fractured is made whole
until the ebb flows

Lord
I wait till the tide turns
until the ordinary becomes strange
until the empty is presence-full
until the two become one
until the ebb flows 

Prayer shared by Tina Harris, who read it out at our Annual Holy Island Pilgrimage in June 2014.
