Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 4/24

Nonetheless Doubting by John Granville Gregory


Thomas was a doubter, Lord:
    he wanted to see
    your struggling’s wounds
    earlier than he’d consider
    your risen glory…

I am a doubter, too, Lord:
    I typically keep away from
    the marks of your ache,
    wanting solely the balm
    of your therapeutic contact…

However the way in which of the Cross
is the trail to your peace:
there isn’t any different strategy to get there…

My very own wounds, Lord
mark exactly the place
the place you come to fulfill me:
    mending my soul,
    therapeutic my doubts, 
    inviting me into your peace…
Like Thomas, Lord, I doubt
and  so I pray for the reward of religion…
And like Thomas, I consider:
Lord, assist my unbelief…
