Poem/Prayer for Worship

Poem/Prayer for Worship by Thom Shuman
Abba: hungering for more that we deserve, we demand our way and you give it. we stuff ourselves on the empty husks of pleasure and selfishness, our shallow souls hungering for more; we party our way through life, awakening in sin's gutters, our hollow hearts hungering for more; then stumbling and stammering, we hunger to find our way back to you - where you fling wide heaven's doors, dragging your stainless robe through the litter of our sin, running to sweep us up in your arms and carry us home where we will hunger no more. Abba. (c) 2007 Thom M. Shuman
