A Collect for Thin Spaces

Oh Father, who composed the melodies of the Pine Warbler and inspires the improvisation of the Woodthrush; who breathed the breeze on which your Spirit proceeds and carries these songs to my receiving ears, and who inhabits the praise with which I respond, draw me always to this thin space and instill in me the knowledge that, though not needed, my song is desired, and bend your ear to my feeble fingers and voice enabled by your Son who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
