Prayer #58: Exhaustion Pipe

Kind of how I feel right now:



Prayer #58: Exhaustion Pipe

Lord, can You hold off on being the rock of salvation for a moment, and be a pillow instead?

A firm pillow, so that my integrity is sound and my moral backbone intact. And yet a soft one, so that my tossing and turning, my questioning and wandering, is invited and accepted.

From the setting sun to the rising dawn, I look to You for peace and comfort. Ease my body and my mind. And as my wildest dreams and darkest nightmares play out with You against my cheek, may I rest assured You lead me toward a waking state.

Amen.
