Kneading And Rising

liz sifting

As I knead the flour

I think of all the many grains

That have been ground to make it

Christ’s church is like flour

Made up of many people of many races

Ground up to make a single dough.

As I watch the dough rise

I think of the yeast’s power

Raising up the weight of flour and water

Prayer in Christ is like rising dough

Drawing together every hope and fear

And lifting them up to God.


Prayer from my Celtic Praise book
