The Fight, a Prayer

God,
I’m so tired of fighting the same fight
Over and over

And yet here we are
Fighting…or is it trying
to find the solution together.

Sometimes, it feels the same
as words fail, time is on repeat
And hurt seems inevitable

It’s like a storm inside your heart rages
And it meets the hurricane of the other
And you are both striving, and beloved

God do you have teenagers?
Are you tired of repeating yourself to
Humanity, the Church, Powers and Principalities?

Do you speak so softly God,
That people get even more fiercely angry,
Because they think you sound condescending?

God what did you do, when after isolating us (Eden)
Punishing us (Babel, Noah’s Ark)
How did you realize the right way to be in relationship with us?

Was the moment when you said, You can cry and scream at me all you want
And I promise I will still love you

Well that’s something I can get behind

Grace in the the storms

God be with us in the fight
Amen
