We cannot understand (#2 of 2 linked prayers)

God is greater than we can understand
(Job 36:26; NLT). 

We cannot understand
Your peace,
So we persist in fighting
Senseless wars.

We cannot comprehend
Your love,
So we persist in prejudice,
And hate.

We cannot understand
Your truth,
So we persist in ignorance,
And lies.

We cannot comprehend
Your wrath,
So we persist in leaving change
Too late.


His wrath is poured out like fire
(Nahum 1:6; NIV).

Perhaps even yet they will turn from their evil ways and ask the Lord’s forgiveness before it is too late
(Jeremiah 36:7; NLT).
