Prayer

Nothing at all

Your love for me is very great (Psalm 86:13; NLT).

You will grow as you learn to know God better and better (Colossians 1:10; NLT).

I love you, Lord (Psalm 18:1; NLT).

I am nothing at all (2 Corinthians 12:11; NLT).

 

Lord,
If I had
All the riches
Of the earth,
But did not have
Your love,
I would have
Nothing at all.

And if I had
All the knowledge
In the world,
Yet did not
Know you,
I would know
Nothing at all.

And if I had health,
Beauty,
And strength,
Yet did not
Love you,
I would be
Nothing at all.

Into patient inner strength,
And even joy!
