Kingfisher prayer


A friend of mine shared this with me and I rather like it, so now I'm sharing it with you...


Prayer is like watching for the Kingfisher.
All you can do is Be where he is likely to appear, and Wait.
Often, nothing much happens;
There is space, silence and Expectancy.
No visible sign, only the Knowledge that he's been there And may come again.
Seeing or not seeing cease to matter,
You have been prepared.
But sometimes, when you've almost Stopped expecting it,
A flash of brightness Gives encouragement.
