Interfaith Prayer by by Mary Lou Kownacki, O.S.B.

I bow to the one who signs the cross.
I bow to the one who sits with the Buddha.
I bow to the one who wails at the wall.

I bow to the OM flowing in the Ganges.
I bow to the one who faces Mecca,
whose forehead touches holy ground.

I bow to dervishes whirling in mystical wind.

I bow to the north,
to the south,
to the east,
to the west.

I bow to the God within each heart.

I bow to epiphany,
to Godís face revealed.

I bow. I bow. I bow.
