Compass: A Prayer of Thanks

Anne Lamott tells us that there are basically only 3 prayers: Help, Thanks, Wow

This is (mostly) from Christine Rigden.


Thankyou Lord for being the firm centre of my world

I may dash here and there to listen, hug and comfort, write or pray –

But always circle back again to home, and you.

Your love grounds me in stability – gives me roots, an anchor in storms.

Where would I be without you?

Endlessly adrift without horizons.

Thankyou for freeing me to reach out (It’s who I am, why I’m here.)

But like a compass draws a circle, I need you at my centre.

To find purpose, to be whole.
