The Folly of Forgetfulness | A Prayer Series, Day IV

 

The dark horizon hides itself

in the blackness of the sky.

The world is concealed in night this hour,

and we watch the motionless mass once again.

We have sat awake in many midnights.

Never has this black horizon proved persistent.

Never has this darkness been eternal.

And in the unintentional expectations of our own minds,

our hearts respond in new awareness:

Never once have You withheld the sun.

Never once have You left us in the dark.

Every morning,

each dawn,

You are faithful.

Every midnight,

every dark hour,

You are faithful.

And in this dark hour of waiting,

we choose again to remember,

and we choose again to believe.
