braided

Our experience, God,
is a confusing braiding together
of wonder and horror,
hope and fear,
pride and regret,
gratitude and anger—
all woven seamlessly into our praying.

And so we image You
so carefully tracing the strands of our praying—
some with wonder, some with horror,
some with hope, some with fear,
some with pride, some with regret,
some with gratitude, some with anger—
all woven seamlessly into Your loving.

You know us as we truly are;
we seek to ever know You as You are

in Jesus’ name,
amen.
