Can’t Pray

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.
