Today, I pray for you and yours…
Lord, what a tangled web we weave
when first we practice to deceive.
Who do we deceive?
We deceive ourselves when…
We believe we are too far gone for you
to reach down and scoop us up in your arms .
We judge ourselves and find our
own deficiencies reason for condemnation.
We manage our anxiety with veiled attempts
to push it onto some other poor schmuck.
We use our anger to fuel our action.
We take our emotions at face value
and run headlong into reaction without pause
We distrust our feelings without thanking them
for getting our attention
Woe are we in our confusion and chaos!
Bring us home Lord, home to you.
Grant us rest, as you promised.
Wisdom as you intended.
Save us and ours!
