Sunday Prayer

God.
Oh my God, where are you?
I am lost and so alone.
Hear my prayer.

God.
Oh my. God? Where am I?
Alone? Forgotten?
Abandoned....

God.
My hope. My only hope.
Hear my cry, my plea
Hear my prayer.

God.
In you I put my trust.
In you I lay my life.
You. My prayer.

God.
Help me to love
You, neighbor, self.
Help me...you.

God.
Naked, vulnerable
hoping, more than
hope in you.

God.
This day, yesterday
tomorrow, always
hear my prayer.

Amen.
