Catechism 40

What should we pray?
The whole Word of God directs and inspires us in what we should pray, including the prayer Jesus himself taught us.
(New City Catechism)

What then?
The whole story beckons:
Creation, fall, flood, a people
set apart yet crumbling.
Every moment shines
what-might-be against what-is,
entropy’s melancholy truth, and yet
this potentiality of grace.
The sorry state, the hope of otherwise,
drags knees down and elevates hearts
in hopeful, humbled prayer.
