Poem/Prayer for Worship

Poem/Prayer for Worship by Thom Shuman
it's the word of confidence to a 9-year-old which one day leads to the winning goal in a World Cup match; it's the extra practice sessions after school, going over word after word, which bolsters a young girl at the Spelling Bee Nationals; it's the gentle touch of a mother in the terror of a midnight thunderstorm which leads a child into nursing; in a world which idolizes sucess, greatness, biggie-sized achievements, remind us of those mustard seeds planted deep within us by so many over the years, which help to shape us into the people you mean us to be, Tender God. (c) 2006 Thom M. Shuman folks on the midrash, etalk and worship-rcl listservs may use as they deem appropriate. (c) 2006 Thom M. Shuman
