When our days are long,
When our eyes are closed,
When we would rather look away than lean into You, remind us.
When the battle feels lost,
When we guide one more time for the same missed step,
When we serve until we are numb,
When we would rather wash our hands of the battle than fight the war, remind us.
Remind us that You are the same God that showed up for Paul and Timothy.
Through You, there is power to be found within us.
There is a great work to be done within the confine of our homes.
Remind us that when we are empty, You raise us up from the inside out.
The war is won.
And the trials,
They are only temporary.
Remind us that You have given us salvation because You are The Saving King.
It is a salvation that is precious
And, it is shared because we can give.
We can give because You are a Living God.
You are a Living God, living within us.
