I need a prayer

I need a prayer, God—
vulnerable,
honest,
meaningful.

Within circumstance so often
so far from what we wish it were,
and, sometimes, so much more
than we could possibly imagine,
I need a prayer—
to name utter need,
and profound hope,
and a trust to cling to.

Amidst the tears of life
at its deepest,
I need a prayer

and have but a sigh ….

Amen.
