Manna

God, I prayed this morning you would take the pain away
– the heartbreak and the worries – in a mighty display
of your amazing power to make creation obey
but it’s manna again today.

God, I prayed this morning for the people on my heart,
for those who long to be together but must stay apart
I do believe you, Father, you are good in every way
and there’s manna again today.

It’s manna – just enough of it –
and grace for the day.
O Lord, I want a miracle
that I can feel and weigh
and point to and talk about
on the next rainy day.
But the miracle is ‘God with us’
and manna for just one day.

God, I cried this morning. I know that you cried too.
I wish I understood it all. I cannot say I do.
Ministering to the hurt, I find the Truth, the Life, the Way
with manna for one more day.

God, I know you don’t evade my questions. You came
to be with us, and stay with us, and never leave again.
I pray, Lord, for a miracle for those you dearly love,
for another day with manna from above.

It’s manna – just enough of it –
and grace for the day.
O Lord, I want a miracle
that I can feel and weigh
and point to and talk about
on the next rainy day.
But the miracle is ‘God with us’
and manna for just one day.
