TRAPS


small animal wooden hunting trap, set on a tree limb, snow covering everywhere

A prayer based upon Psalm 141


O Holy One, I’m begging

Hurry

Please listen to my pleas

Allow my cries to be a beautiful smell

wafting up toward you

my hands lifted in petition


Here’s what I’m asking

I need help with my words

They slip out, unguarded

and need a trap door

Same for my heart

which needs an evil-blocker

So that I am not tempted

toward trouble making


Allow me to accept whatever course-correction

you have in store for me


Don’t let me get caught up in the blame game

Keep my focus on you

where I can always find a safe place

where my soul is defended

where I’m safe from the snares and traps

of things and people who wish to trip me up
