and ears so that we cannot hear,
and hearts so that we cannot know,
and we miss it.
Work on our ears today.
turn them so that they may tingle with the ways in which you have turned loose among us the powers of death and the forces of life.
Grant that we should not live in the safe middle ground,on the surface, but push us to the edge, where the action is.
Your action, where you cause all those terrible Fridays and all those amazing Sundays.
Give us Saturday ears for your tingling.
We pray in the name of your Saturday child.
