Today I cannot pray.
There are no words.
I feel no hope.
I am broken.
I am alone!
God, I feel estranged from you.
Today you seem hidden from me.
Your voice is out of reach.
I stretch out my hand but can not reach your hand.
I cry out but my voice echoes back in the darkness, there is no answer.
I am alone on this mountainside
With the howl of the wind and the cry of the wild wolf.
I am alone.
But I shall wait for your voice knowing that it will come as it always has before..
For now I shall borrow this prayer until once again I am able to pray in my own words.
