Not so fond of transformation a prayer

Praying for transformation that I’m not sure I want. By John Levison 

Holy Spirit, 
I’m not so fond of transformation. 
I’m not so hungry for adaptation.

I’m not so keen on modification. 
“Leave things as they are.” 
That’s my earnest prayer. 

But how can I ask you for this? 
And how could you possibly answer this prayer?

What could I be thinking? 
How little could I know you? 

You’re torrential. 
We’re sopping, sodden, soaked. 
Caught in the downpour of your craving 
to transform us from inside out 
and also from outside in. 

Amen
