There are days that I don’t know how to address You.
There are moments that I don’t know how to serve You.
There are times that I don’t know I believe You.

In this moment of the hour in this little room where I am praying,
I wonder about You.
What are You doing?
For whom are You praying?
How are You speaking…
to me?

Do You know this deep longing within me?
Is it You, longing within me?
There is so much inside
I can hardly bear the worlds within my heart~~
the sharp joys,
the hollowing griefs,
the unrealized art,
the floating silence that stretches,
the cacophony of a million instruments tuning, seeking the true note.

Reach inside me,
Pull what You want out,
Give me courage
to
Be
Yours.

Amen.
