The inbreaking

Icon of Holy Wisdom
Into the daily cycle of our lives
When all seems well
With us and with the world
When our yoke is easy
And the burden light
You break in
And scatter our complacency

Into the daily cycle of our lives
When we are comfortable
And at our ease
When the fire is lit
But eyes are closed
You break in
And challenge our dependency

You break into
Our daily prayers
Humble hearts
Lay souls bare
You break in
You break in

You break in
When defences are down
With an Angel's shout
Or the quietest sound
You break in
You break in

And we change
And all things change
When you break in

I found the prayer on this page.


  1. Absolutely beautiful. What a God we have...never content to leave us in our complacency, always 'breaking in'. We are grateful.

  2. What a stupid fantasy you have; a middle-class, middle-aged and middle-brow skyfairy who agrees with all your political and social ideas; an LL Bean-wearing, NPR-listening twit in the sky.
    You and the fundiegelicals deserve each other.

  3. Again the anger. It seems to be growing. What is that about?

  4. Oh, I had a troll for a while here, Tom. That's why I finally said I would delete unsigned anonymous comments. It's someone who came over here from another site I visit and comment on and just liked to vent.

    I thought this comment was particularly funny -- LL Bean wearing and all that!
