Dear God, I pray for tired commuters
Some even asleep as they ride on the subway
I pray for that one passenger
Who offered sweet snacks to youth seated nearby
And I pray for the child who thought to thank the driver
Her kindness reminded me of the power of words
I pray for the travelers and the drivers as well—
A diverse group with different destinations,
Yet sharing an experience en route
So much happens in transit, for which I don’t think to pray
But God, today, I pray for the people
Who I do not know, but with whom I travel
You know these people. For them, I pray in your holy name. Amen.
