Haiku Prayer #13

"Haiku" prayers, in Japanese poetical form, have their
origin in the fourteenth century. They consist of 17
syllables arranged in three lines (5-7-5). This
provides a simple format for composing personal and
family prayers. The following haiku prayer is a
Canadian example. You are encouraged to develop your

God of life and love,
fill us with love for Jesus,
holy Mary's son.
