We cannot understand (#1 of 2 linked prayers)

People cannot see the whole scope
of God’s work from beginning to end
(Ecclesiastes 3:11; NLT).

We cannot understand
Your work,
Failing to see its scope
From start to end.

We cannot comprehend
Your Son,
Failing to grow like him,
As you intend.

We cannot understand
Your strength,
Failing to grasp our emptiness

We cannot comprehend
Your wrath,
Failing to grasp our ignorance
And sin.


You are indeed angry, for we have sinned
(Isaiah 64:5;  NKJV).
