(You) must be a committed friend of holy prayer,
one who can distribute some hours
for (your own) soul, and for others.
– St. Francis of Assisi
Who in this space, God, to me;
what within your chosen hour?
Whose soul re-distribute here,
stir within your fertile power.
Holy Spirit risking enter,
friend of Jesus to encounter,
careful turn inside our prayer,
wake to breathe, your kin-dom sample.
-William B. Jones
(Francis cited from Assisi Compilation XLII)
