Whisper a prayer into your hands.
Then blow on it just like a dandelion
and watch it float right up to heaven.
For when prayers go up,
we know grace rains down.
And while you may not always receive the blessing you were expecting,
and the joy of the Lord will always be found.
* I tweaked a Yiddish proverb from "prayers go up and blessings come down" to "For when prayers go up, we know grace rains down".
