between can and can’t

Our God,

We marvel at all medicine can accomplish,
and at what it can’t.
We wonder at what all we can offer each other
as friends and family,
and at what we can’t.

And at the intersection of what we can accomplish
and what we can’t,
we pray—
believing You work
beyond where we can
and within where we can’t.

We don’t know what we mean,
specifically,
making that affirmation,
but we believe.

And we pray,
committed to doing all we can,
in the name of Jesus,
who himself did so much
between our cans and can’ts,
amen.
