A Heart Of Questions . . .And Questions With Heart!

 
 
 
 
Prayer For A Questioning Heart

It seems to me, God,
that we search
much too desperately
for answers
when a good question
holds as much grace
as an answer.

Jesus,
you are the Great Questioner.
Keep our questions alive
that we may always be seekers
rather than settlers.

Guard us well
from the sin of settling in
with our answers
hugged to our breasts.

Make of us
a wondering,
far-sighted,
questioning,
restless people.

And give us the feet of pilgrims
on this journey unfinished.
