With thanks to Tracey Byrne for reminding us of this lovely prayer. On his Year’s Mind, may Jim rest in peace and rise in glory.
Restore the years, O God, that we have lost,
that the locusts have eaten.
Give to us the future we thought we should never see.
Even when we feel exiled,
locked in, despairing,
move secretly within us and among us
and without our realizing it
keep us moving on our journey to your city. Amen.
