A prayer from a wanderer—

Lord, your grace tells me you hear me though I feel far from you. I have made myself, my thoughts, and my work more important. I have forgotten that I need you and my soul feels empty, thirsty, lonely, weary, dark. Rescue me from my wickedness, oh my God. Usher me into your light once more and help me to repent. Help my crooked soul to accept your grace and move toward your perfection. I need you. I ruin everything I touch in this small kingdom of mine. I remember that I love you.
