A Prayer for the Tenth Day of Christmas

Today, I will persevere in prayer.
I’ll yield all I once thought I could not live without.
I’ll breath-in the brief and exquisite happiness of this holy nakedness.
Faith, carry me these last few steps.
Hope, hold me.
Love, fill me.

Hullo from "down under" in Melbourne Victoria, Australia. I picked up your blog in one of those random 'next blog' buttons at the top of the page. I'm a Christian and blog with that focus exclusively at "The Contemplative Crisis",

Unlike the weather where you are, we are having regular 90+ F days. In mid-January it was 110 F, or 42 C.
A friend of mine, Al Hirsch has a blog which preceeded yours. He was originally a Melbourne lad, but now resides in LA, California. Bye, yours in Christ, Rob
