Almighty One,
Before I get lost,
In this night of false belief,
This night of cheap faith,
This night when my real is exposed,
Along with my bare feet.
Before I give in.
Before I give up.
Before I walk away.
In silent complicity.
It’s obnoxious,
I know,
but would you,
please,
feed me.
Fill me.
Hope in me.
Give me strength.
Share your grace.
Share your all.
With me.
(Even tonight.)
Please.

AMEN.
