Prayer #149: Good Love


His parents are good people.
She comes from good stock.
He has a good heart.
She has a good job.
He would make a good husband.
She, a good wife.
Sound good?

Prayer #149: Good Love

Lord, in our search for love --

be it through hometown busybodies
or intercontinental pursuits
or online matchmaking
or old friends re-imagined
or a pause on a park bench,
waiting for a glance --

help us remember that You
created this mysterious power
to express the spectrum of good.

So when You heap Your love upon us,
may we absorb some
and share some
and all around do good by Your gift.
