Morning Prayer: Jesus, Your name is a holy chorus that stills and focuses the human heart. Please quiet the clanging cymbals of life’s demands that clatter in our minds. Refill us with joyous sounds of Your voice. One word from You, Lord, and the lame leap, the crippled pirouette, and those bowed down rise to stand on tiptoes. We are at times lame with limitations, crippled with cares, and bowed down with life’s heaviness. We long for Your dance-producing presence and wait for the dawn of joy within us. Amen.
