the breathing of the soul

Michael Leunig knows how to pray. I love his outpourings and the cartoons that accompany them to perfection. The image I’ve used here isn’t the one that goes with the prayer in the book mentioned, but I am currently without a scanner so am using an etching of his that’s been hiding awhile in my computer. To me, it says everything.

God accept our prayers.
Send us tears in return.
Give freedom to this exchange.
Let us pray inwardly.
Let us weep outwardly.
This is the breathing of the soul.
This is the vitality of the spirit.
For this we give thanks.

Amen
