Dear Lord, in Christ Jesus’ name,
I ask You to guide me.
I find me to be
So inadequate in the face
Of things prayer and intimacy
Reveal. To me You’ve become
A promiser of things
That seem at first so simple
To me, powerful in the revealing,
Attainable easily. Then prayer ends.
Life sets in, and things begin
To seem far off, as if to be
A dream, an error, fallacy,
That what first was promised
Is now dream.
Help me believe.
