These “pillow prayers” in a little book I have continue to provide some extravagant, poetic faith-expressions. I offer them because a) my words aren’t this good, and b) I think some of us, including me, need to have material like this for our own prayers.
God Who sees . . . I’m grateful that your view is not obstructed by darkness. I await your intervention for my shadowed existence. Liberate me from myopic tendencies lest I live out my life in a restricted space.
Some days, my opinions block out healing truth. My dingy motives can slip past me unrecognized. Release me from the entanglement of sight-altering distractions–inconveniences, interruptions, and other people’s behavior. The horizon brightens as I focus on You.
– Patsy Clairmont, in Pillow Prayers.
