The Art of Gentle Revolution

The week’s “Prayer of the Week” is taken from Michael Leunig’s 1990 collection, A Common Prayer.


God help us to change.
To change ourselves and to change our world.
To know the need for it. To deal with the pain of it.
To feel the joy of it. To undertake the journey
without understanding the destination.
The art of gentle revolution.
