Desire is enough

There is a prayer from The Old Sacramentary that still echoes in my feeble mind. "The desire to pray is in its self a prayer." We do not have that great burning desire to pray. The remotest, infinite, fear-full, wish to connect somehow with That Great Power, The Great Spirit, that we have a suspicion exists, is enough. I am at a loss for the right words to express how little it takes for a connection to be realized and allowed to both happen and blossom. I was going to say "for prayer to happen" but that would throw a great number of us off.  I was so thrilled to read a number of years ago that to seek a Higher Power is to know That Great Spirit, The Holy Spirit has Already has found us. There will be a new experience of love, this will be awe-full, full of wonder leading to a never before awakening. It is, as it were, "a quiet voice calling us to explore deeper." (TS Elliott)
