ETCHED IN MEMORY

Christ Enthroned Icon

HAIBUN

This impressive Christ icon welcomes parishioners of a magnificent church nestled in the Kendall neighborhood of Miami, just a stone’s throw from where my parents lived.  Drawn to this image where I laid so many prayers at His feet each day I visited my family,  the icon came to mind as I woke up with inspiration to write a prayer.

Prayer

As if an angel’s spirit whispered

“I am ever faithful Rabboni

Wake up to taste and see my goodness

That I may show you how to walk above the broken pieces of glass on this earthly journey of yours

Each day this mystery unfolds the Kingdom of God before your eyes

Behold my Love and Protection

My Promise of Salvation is yours eternally and for everyone you know and love.”

Amen.

Dear Friends, I pray this prayer for you
