Father , for this Jesus-life I pray: to be born of the Spirit – free to spin, twist, dive, and climb, whirled along by the breath of God. Just as a bird relies on the wind and trusts it to carry her by its power, and becomes familiar with the ways to rest in its strength, I pray to move, and live, and have my being in you, O God, you who will be worshiped in spirit and in truth.

–Teri Hyrkas
