My Book of Uncommon Prayers: I Pray

138 - Copy

There is a quiet place I go to inside my head

when the noise is too loud and voices conflict.

There is a place I go

to distance myself from the pain,

to find a shelter from confusion—the cacophony of the broken—

and I put away my own noise.

I release,

relax,

pray, and

I find You are there.

    “the cacophony of the broken” what a wonderful phrase, and how closely it describes my work life.
