Women’s Prayer

Women In Their Tender Way
God listens more to women’s prayer than

Men’s when women are in their tender way.

Because often they have achieved with the blessings

Of the earth.

What a man can rarely do on his own:

Bring empathy ,sensitivity and kindness into the heart and mind,

And make the voice more tender,

One’s touch more gentle, one’s plea more powerful from it being so sincere.

It is holy, blood.

And all that can come from a body

As if it were part of God,

Everything should be enshrined.


From A Year with Hafiz; daily contemplations by Daniel Landinsky
