a prayer of longing and praise

Praise to you Ground of my Longing.  You see my restless heart and offer rest.
You see my sense of incompleteness and offer wholeness.
You see my prayers for a better world and offer redemption.
You see my waiting and know the terror of dreams that never come true,
but still you wait with me.
For you embrace my deepest desire
Ground of my Longing,
praise to you.

--Tess Ward, The Celtic Wheel of the Year:Celtic and Christian Seasonal Prayers, p. 264
