Lord, let us not give up your cause, nor abandon your work. Let
us not give up the fight. Let us persevere, until we see your
kingdom come and enter into your glory. Amen.

Francis Asbury (1745-1816)

Praying with depression
I cannot pray; the past is too painful for praise,
the future is too frightening for hope.
I am frozen in the present – black, unending.
My precious child, how you feel now will pass,
and though you cannot discern it,
my love tenderly surrounds you.
I will not let you go.
