Prayer: Ephesians 2: 20-22

Here’s a beautiful prayer reflection on Ephesians 2: 20-22.  It was written by Thom Shuman.

House Building

“We are his house,
built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets….”
Ephesians 2:20

me -
a dwelling place for God?

my roof
leaks
with wayward
and wanton thoughts . . .

my windows
look out on a world
lusting for more
and caring for less;
if any dare peek in,
they will see the same hungers . . .

my furnace
is filled
with the ashes
of dusty dreams
and hapless hopes . . .

my foundation
cracks
under the weight of loneliness,
ravaged
by the storms of sadness.

i would build you
a house,
my God;

rebuild me
instead.

Amen.
