When I Pray

young-woman-praying

I do not pray
to escape from conflict
but rather to understand
conflict as a tool for growth.

I pray to gain
not knowledge
but insight.

My prayers reach
toward the Divine
and seek, not material gain
but rather that my soul
expands into greater receptivity.

I pray so that I can go
from what is to what
is destined to be.
