Our Prayers Break on God

by Luci Shaw

Our prayers break on God like waves,

and he an endless shore,

and when the seas evaporate
and oceans are no more

and cries are carried in the wind

God hears and answers every sound

as he has done before.

Our troubles eat at God like nails.

He feels the gnawing pain

on souls and bodies.

He never fails

but reassures he’ll heal again

again, again, again and yet again.

“Our Prayers Break On God” by Luci Shaw
