Dear God, I strain to feel your presence. I recall days I felt you near. Where has this awareness gone?
I sit in secret, planning how I will conquer the day. I know I am in the trance of illusion, yet I find it difficult to awaken.
Lord, you love even those farthest from you. Let me have willingness that you love me equally. Let me have willingness to awaken to your power.
I seek a road that leads to you, Lord. Yet even were I on it, fear I would not know.
O Lord, open my eyes and heart.
