woman praying


God you are used to your people
complaining and grumbling
making idols
when it seems you are out of sight
We’ve done it all through the ages.
We remove ourselves from you
and then blame you
for not being around.
And there are all sorts of things
to take our attention,
to fill the spaces
All sorts of shiny distractions
that appease us for a while.
But none can take the place of your steadfast love
and your constant care.
So draw us back to you
the source of love and life everlasting.
