Grace and Peace to you.
Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane; and he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.”
— Matthew 26.36
He does not ask great faith of me,
but only that I stay awake
to the prayers of the suffering.
In every faltering morning meditation,
my prayer mere tissue in the wind,
in every half-hearted afternoon,
heart drifting in and out of sleep,
there is One, soggy-kneed and steady,
who is praying
with all the heart of heaven,
You are my prayer.
You are my companion,
