Prayer 7

Lord, your silence is terrifying. 
Your distance is a great obstacle to my faith. 
 Am I praying in a coffee can? Where do I stand with you? 
We are fickle people who go about our day. With a faint breeze of good fortune we feel loved. Then with a drop of bad news we gnaw our lip and question our eternal security. We make one good choice and think we could stand with Moses to meet you face-to-face. Then we squander our fruit on selfish folly and scamper for places to hide. Lord, what good is my redemption to you if only heaven sees it? What good is the grace you will pour out on me if not even one God-hater witnesses it? What good is your justice to the oppressed if the oppressors are all deep in the grave before you bring it? 
 Lord, bring redemption now. Pour out your grace now. Bring justice now. Let us see fear in the eyes of God-haters. 
 Let us see the terrifying epiphanies of evil people. 
 Let us know where we stand. 

 Psalm 88:10-14
