Prayer & Praise
We cleave to you in all the ways that we are able.
We count on you and intend our lives to be lived for you, and then we find ourselves among your people who are always seeking elsewhere and otherwise.
So we give thanks that you are the God who yearns and waits for us,
and that our connection to you is always from your side,
and that it is because of your goodness that neither life nor death nor angels nor principalities nor heights nor depths nor anything in creation can separate us from you.
We give you thanks for your faithfulness, so much more durable than ours.
