Wolf and Lamb

The wolf shall live with the lamb…
 and a little child shall lead them. 
  wolf and lamb     — Isaiah 11.6

God, there are wolves and lambs in me,

kind spirits and angry ones.

Make gentle my bitter wolves,

and defend the lambs of mercy.

Heal the wounds that feed my rage,

and give courage to my love.

Grant that the wolf renounce its appetites,

the lamb surmount its fears.

May the Christ child lead wolf and lamb together,

that I may be whole, and all of me welcomed.

May I find joy in what is strong and gentle

and in the power of tenderness, 
and gratitude for creatures who all need each other.

Christ child, lead me to a place of peace.


Breath prayer:
         Wolf and lamb … together
