Daily Prayer

My son told me today
he’s not sure he believes in You.
The jury is still out on that one, he said.
At eleven, he’s figured it out
and knows all the answers.

Please help me hold my tongue
so he can make his own way in the world.
Help me to accept everyone
in my life, including my own child,
just as they are.

Erase the tendency in me
to climb up on my high horse
and look down on these
“poor misguided souls.”
Replace my judgment with the truest religion:
live, fully, and let live.
