Prayer for vision

Artist: William Blake

It's easy to become very cynical today and lose any confidence in the possibility of vision at all. Maybe that's why this prayer seems very beautiful to me:

May a good vision catch me
May a benevolent vision take hold of me, and move me
May a deep and full vision come over me, and burst open around me
May a luminous vision inform me, enfold me.

David Abram

The above is quoted in Prayers for a Thousand Years by Elizabeth Roberts and Elias Amidon.
