    Too Often

    Ed Stevenson

    Too often, O God,

    the terrors of the world

    seem to overwhelm

    the promises of Your love.

    Too often, O God,

    the smallness of our talents,

    resources and opportunities

    dishearten and distract us

    and make us doubt

    the promises of Your love.

    Too often, O God,

    we do not even think of You,

    do not even listen for You,

    do not even look for You

    in the struggles and joys

    of our daily life.

    Open our hearts and minds

    and our daily activity

    to the persistence of Your promise,

    the power, the joy,

    the real presence

    of Your love.

    Amen.
