Prayer on a Lonely Evening

and let this yearning rest

in You

reminding me that even the dust

of earth, which I’m made of,

along with its rivers and trees,

stones and mountains,

is lonely


for the day when You and I

will no longer be separated

by hope


and though the ache runs deep

let it lead me to the place where

only glory waits—


in the wordless groans that impart

the strength to endure


and the ability to receive

unseen love


until disappointment itself rejoices

that my heart at long last

sees Your face


Romans 8:18-27
