Rachel Hackenberg offers a weekly prayer-writing prompt. This week’s is based off of Psalm 38:4
“My iniquities have gone over my head; they weigh on me
like a burden too heavy for me.”
What stands between me and You, Lord?
What have I ignored
or simply stopped caring about?
I stand and look at the obstacles
between me and freedom
and I balk.
It’s too hard.
It’s too much work.
Yes… It is too much
for me to do
I’ve taken the first step
knee-deep in muck,
chain saw in hand,
rakes and shovels at the ready.
Could you please make
the first cut?
