This is a prayer, as You know, for that person who is
beyond tired of spiritual attack. You know who they are, Lord.
That voice that cries out in the wilderness just now,
seeking to be heard, seeking to be met, seeking to be found.
Come to that one now.
This one who is reaching out to You one final time,
though in fact they may have years ago found You,
or, perhaps they haven’t and yet they need You now!
The one who has come to a place that resembles a precipice:
come home to them in the miraculous way of a sign.
For the one who is at their end of their resolve,
the person who has tried everything but has come up short,
this one who has left nothing to chance,
who is giving it one last try before one last try,
be to this one a sign in the form of an answer to this prayer.
When all has turned against this life that feels forlorn,
and the trophies of past have tarnished brown long ago,
where hope and peace and joy amid love were possessed,
but are now no more during this time,
give ascent to Your grace and power in them now.
For the one who is so close to You but knows it not,
the person who pleases you by not only who they are,
but for what they also do,
even as they keep working in faith without having received the promise,
deliver upon that promise today.
As states of anxiety and depressed thought cloud and crowd,
as fear contends and sadness evolves,
grace their countenance with a glow that can only be You,
even as they come to see it for themselves.
Holy Spirit, rain down, today.
In the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
