How can I serve you?

I am weary and worn out, O God (Proverbs 30:1; NLT).

Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer (Romans 12:12; NRSV).

How can I serve you, Lord,

With chronic illness?

I’m always tired,

And don’t go out much now.

I have so little energy

For helping others.

Instead, may I learn

To rejoice in hope, my Father,

To be patient in suffering,

And to persevere in prayer.
