Prayer for Resting in the Lord

I lean forward, Lord.





I wait eagerly for sunrise,

for You—

to see the face of Truth

rising in love

over my cloudy horizon.


I wait in stillness like the grass,

at peace

with the dew, with the shades of darkness

that will not remain in daylight,

at rest

beside the mountains of mystery

I cannot understand.


I wait in fullness,

my heart open

like the blooms of summer zinnias,

holding nothing back.


I wait in reverence with the trees,

with nothing to boast of

except for the One who made me

as I am,

in His image.


I lean forward to see You,

to know You,

and to flourish


in Your presence today.
