teach me how to walk
in your way:
with an open heart and
thick skin.

remind me that while
fear and anger last only
for a moment,
compassion and faithfulness
are as infinite as time

show me how to turn
my fear of the unknown
into awe of you;
help me to chart my path
with no other destination
but the promise of a
bountiful inheritance.

guide me into the heart
of enemy territory,
to the land of my
darkest fears;
bring me face to face
with my own shadow
that i may find refuge
in the brilliance
of your love.
