We Drink Our Tears
day and night,
while people say to me all day long,
“Where is your God?”
God, perhaps for most of us, this is not true. To pray this psalm would mostly be a lie. We are more grieved when our team loses than we are that you are not revered---we are more grieved by the mistakes of others, than we are that we do not know you. Father, would you change our hearts to grieve in a world where in comparison to your worth, you have so little value in our eyes. Make us a people disheartened that you are not loved with body, mind, and soul. We don't want pain for pain's sake. We do, however, want to feel deeply how amiss we have become. Father like we need our nerves to work in the face of harm to our bodies, make our hearts hurt when we face harm to our very appreciation and love for you! We know you are there, reveal your power and your love and ease our pain as we pray.
