Noon Prayer 1

Beverly Lanzetta Meditations, Prayer

Canticle of Desire

In the stillness of noon prayer,
I long for you
Enflame my soul with love’s desire
I am your disciple.

In the silence of meditation,
I long for you
Take my life for your own
I am your disciple.

In the busyness of the day,
I long for you
Harness my heart for your work
I am your disciple.

In the warmth of family and friends,
I long for you
Use my joy for the world’s awakening
I am your disciple.

You called and I said: “Take me!”
Now, I await your touch
Do not abandon me Great Silence
I am your disciple.

Amen.
