Desert Moon

I CANNOT DO THIS ALONE

O God, early in the morning I cry to you. Help me to pray and to concentrate my thoughts on you; I cannot do this alone.

In me there is darkness, but with you there is light; I am lonely, but you do not leave me; I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help;

I am restless, but with you there is peace.  In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience; I do not understand your ways, but you know the way for me. . . .

Restore me to liberty, and enable me to live now that I may answer before you and before men.  Lord, whatever this day may bring, Your name be praised. Amen

—Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Germany/1906–1945)

Amen Brother – Amen!
