A Prayer for Muslims

Let us pray with our Muslim brothers and sisters all over the world as they celebrate the sacred month of Ramadan.

Keeping Watch
(Allah in Arabic script)

In the morning
when I began to wake
it happened again.
That feeling
that you, Beloved,
had stood over me all night
keeping watch.
That feeling
that as soon as I began to stir
You put your lips on my forehead      
And lit a Holy Lamp  
inside my heart
           from I Hear God Laughing
