Only Remember

Munich ELCB Cross

“I shall not pray to God for you
for what I think you would
like to have, or ought to have,
of gain or grace or good;
or even for your current dream,
however absolute
lest time should prove we both had begged
for you a bitter fruit…
only remember you with love
without the least request;
and God, who loves you more than I,
will do for you what’s best.”

 - Ruth Van Gorder, Friends of Silence Journal (via inward/outward)

 

There are still many unanswered prayers or at least prayers awaiting the answers the past 7 years.  People have come and gone.  Moved in and moved out.  Near and far. This season I’m drawn back to a more prayerful mode.

 For those who are still wrestling with basic issues of allegience …

 

For those who are plunged into the deep wells of doubt …

 

For those who are struggling with change or survival …

 

For those who are new to the faith and also the more veteran …

 

For those who are wavering or losing their grip …

 

For those who are circling round and round and not finding a way out …

 

For those sucked into power stuggles …

 

For those who have lost the passion they once had ..

 

For those who are distracted or even lost …

 

For those whom I may have missed while typing all the above …

 

 I’m “remembering” …
