As we begin this week of prayer, heading in to a new year, and looking forward to the new things to come C.S. Lewis has some beautiful words for us about prayer…

Master, they say that when I seem

To be in speech with you,

Since you make no replies, it’s all a dream

– One talker aping two.

They are half right, but not as they

Imagine; rather, I

Seek in myself the things I meant to say,

And lo! the wells are dry.

Then, seeing me empty, you forsake

The Listener’s role, and through

My dead lips breathe and into utterance wake

The thoughts I never knew,

And thus you neither need reply

Nor can; thus while we seem

Two talking, thou art One forever, and I

No dreamer, but thy dream.
