God, like Nicodemus I come at night,
asking less than you answer:
you open an unseen door, invite me
on a farther path than I wanted.
Yet I want this, the confusing lead,
the bewildering invitation,
the dawning promise.
Help me to claim my want, to walk
in the daylight of my desire for you.
Open my heart even wider,
lead me even deeper, into the realm
beyond wisdom and control,
beyond the land of hanging on.
Let me be blown about by your Spirit,
flowing as your water, helpless
in your love.
Holy One, in my night I come to you.
Let your grace dawn upon me.
