Would that I were faithful in prayer
in so many things.
That I would have the maturity to turn off the noise
and seek what faithfulness requires.
Prayer compels, then demands an acquiescence of the will.
It asks for a level of trust and ascent,
surrender and humility.
Things I do not have, but as I sit and listen,
I am able to ask
for less of me that I might be, faithful.
