Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel quotation

There were a couple of neat things in the Common Prayer morning prayers this morning:

Quotation from Abraham Joshua Heschel, “I did not ask for success; I asked for wonder. And You gave it to me.”

The closing prayer was as follows, “You hear our prayers whether they are full of thanksgiving or full of complaints. Your mercy is unending. Even in your discipline you restrain yourself in ways we cannot know. May our mumbled words of gratitude and our fleeting praises find crevices where they can grow within your presence, Lord of light and morning. Amen.”
