Nothing to say
In retreat to a familiar special place to pray
Incontinent of mental effluence
By least resistance…
Pools at Your feet
Consciously…prayer is stifled
Can’t muster a sound
The hurt too deep
too premature
too raw
for licking of wounds
The one of many palms You’ve favored
Begins to sway
Begins to dance
To stir…
The rustling of dry leaves gives You away
by Your Will alone
Only the “One”
And none other
You are undeniable and I feel “shame” though I know better
Ashamed to have nothing to say to You
And I know You’re here with me right “now”
Your mercy thinning out this swirling
The shivers speak volumes
Everything I’m not saying
All I cannot say…
You already know
Eyes closed…
I feel Your presence like a choke-hold
Afraid to open my eyes
Thinking I might see You…then what?
How many times at this precipice?
Losing count
So many questions
But they come only just so far
Then don’t seem to matter anymore
They arise often…irrepressible
Somehow through all these muddled thoughts
You’ve made sense of me
endowed sense into me
In a way I cannot begin to fathom
And my many prayers were heard
Though I never uttered a word
The receipt is in my heart
Much, much more sufficient in grace
Than could ever have been imagined
Or anticipated.
Psalm 107:35
"He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings."

Exactly what I was thinking when I could not find the words to pray, unbeknownst a "prayer" was formed nonetheless!
