Your Spirit is surrounding me,
a whistling shriek
Roil my heart,
Give me the force of temper
to do the work I need to do
to be all of who You long for me to be.
Love me with unbending Truth,
Provoke my mind and body
to lean into the tempest of your Justice.
In hopeful and quaking fear I pray, Amen.
