To Listen Without A Lens

Grant me the grace Oh Lord
Your wisdom to us send
Encounter with a soul
To listen without a lens

Be no paradigm
No judgment to construe
Bless me an open ear
No objective to pursue

Echoing their feelings
Compassion to convey
Granting them the gift
Of what they need to say

A space of comforting
Freedom to reveal
Voice within the deep
What they truly feel

Accepting of what is
Bring it unto to You
Giving You a chance
To cast it in Your view

  1. Beautiful post. So often I listen with a preconceived idea or answer which keeps me from hearing the one voice I need to hear.
    I hope you and yours have had a Merry Christmas and will enjoy a blessed 2019.
