There are eight million stories in the naked city,
all of them overlapping.
Help us find a way to take our homes with us,
to carry them inside us so that we’re never lost.
Create a mobile sacred space for each of us
so that there’s no need for us to clash or collide.
Help us to play well with others.
Allow us a portion of Your eminent domain
so we may build our homes and tear down walls.
Help us to exist both in a little white house with a picket fence
and the community that surrounds it as well.
– Ruth Williams, Prayables
