A Peter Marshall Prayer

               HEAR US, LORD JESUS

Lord Jesus, Thou knowest the things that are trembling
upon our lips, stirring in our hearts and along the corridors
of our souls, walking on tiptoe across the cloistered spaces
of our consciousness; conforming to the distant pealing of
an angelus; looking expectantly upward; making prayers
without words; breathing aspirations that have only wings.

Hear us, we pray Thee, as we call upon Thee for help,
for strength, for peace; for grace, for reassurance, for
companionship; for love, for pardon, for health, for
salvation - for joy.  Hear us, Lord Jesus.  Amen.
