A Poetic Prayer for Nearness

The seeming futility

Of ever even trying

And the crushing pain

From deceit & lying

The marred relationships

Caused by greed & pride

The pit in the stomach

And the knots it's tied

The time to be hurt

And the time to heal

And the yearning to know how

When your heart can't feel

Then the only thing left

Which had been there every second

Is the wooing balm

Of Your heavy presence

So... Fill me with a hunger and thirst

For your nearness, O Lord

And fill me with your magnificent

And most holy presence
