Prayer for Today by Joyce Rupp

Beckoner, 
You tap at the window of my heart. 
You knock at the door of my busyness. 
You call out in my night dreams. 
You whisper in my haphazard prayer. 
You beckon. 
You invite. 
You entice. 
You woo. 
You holler. 
You insist: “Come! Come into my waiting embrace. 
Rest your turmoil in my easy silence. 
Put aside your heavy bag of burdens. 
Accept the simple peace I offer you.”
Joyce Rupp 
(Fragments of Your Ancient Name)
